Barry Millington


"The most important feature of this (refurbishment) was acoustical work-the removal of carpets, for instance, and the installation of a LARES electronic sound enhancement system. So, physically, Adelaide can now claim to have the best venue in the country for opera."

Marcus Center Uihlein Hall, Milwaukee, WI
"For starters, the sound of these massed forces in the new Marcus Center Uihlein Hall acoustic is overwhelming. It's not just the power that takes your breath away, it's the richness, the ringing overtones that happen when all those people are so well in tune."
