A national landmark and a performing arts center par excellence, the National Theatre of Bahrain includes a 750-seat auditorium for drama, small symphony concerts, conferences, jazz, and other amplified music events, as well as a 150-seat flexible studio theatre for conferences, drama, rehearsals and ceremonies. Both spaces were designed with intimacy, excellent sightlines, and flexibility in mind. The main auditorium has a flexible forestage and proscenium, while the studio theatre also offers multiple seating and staging configurations.
