CORBETT OPERA CENTER
Renovation of historic Music Hall's north wing for new Opera headquarters
|Owner||Cincinnati Music Hall|
KEY STRUCTURAL CHALLENGE
SOLUTION GOP Limited's main solution element for the addition was cantilevered steel beams with a composite deck.
FACILITIES Phase 1, which adds tremendous capacity by taking advantage of underutilized space, includes a street-level reception area and box office off Elm Street, space for current/future administrative and production offices, artist's gallery, and several multi-purpose rooms for rehearsals, performances, and meetings. The Opera Center restored many windows that were part of the original facade. Phase 2 includes a large rehearsal space to accommodate the Opera Center's needs.
The total project helps preserve Music Hall's position as a cultural/economic anchor in Cincinnati's Over-the-Rhine area and downtown by ensuring the ongoing residence of the Cincinnati Opera, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and May Festival.
