Design of the Great Hall was inspired by the great European opera houses and features three levels that include opera boxes and a curved mezzanine. My primary memories of our visit were lighting equipment problems caused by a lightning strike earlier in the week and by the ubiquity of small beetles that had been introduced in previous years as natural predators to protect the area's corn plants.
