Stora salongen

This is Halmstad Theater’s flagship venue. Whether you are an artist, lecturer, audience member or conference delegate, the Main Auditorium is a very special place to find yourself. The sound and lighting are top-notch, as are the acoustics. With 900 seats, the auditorium is perfect for large productions and meetings.

The Main Auditorium is also much appreciated for its rich artistic ornamentation, especially the beautiful chandelier, which was designed by architect Gösta Hedström. The colourful abstract ceiling paintings are by Pierre Olofsson and Karl Axel Pehrson. The atmosphere in the auditorium attracts artists and lecturers alike to return to this particular stage. The venue is ideal for large meetings, theater and dance productions and symphony orchestras.

Despite its name, the Grand Auditorium creates a uniquely intimate atmosphere.
