Equipped with acoustic shelling, the Hall comprises a series of convex surfaces to scatter the acoustic energy and avoid concentrated focal points of sound within the room in order to achieve optimum acoustic performance. It is also equipped with a fly tower consisting of 65 units of fly sets which are a combination of manual counter-weight fly sets and motorised fly sets. It is a modified horse-shoe design with stalls parterre and two circle levels.

The Hall is a venue for orchestra performances, concerts, opera, dance and musicals. Its space can also be used for multimedia presentation, seminars and convocation ceremonies.
