The design for the auditorium was enlivened by a large-scale fabric installation over the audience which enveloped them as the wings of a golden flying falcon, the symbol of the awards. The organic and dynamic language was continued on stage, framing the performances that would completely transform every act. On both sides of the seating and the background to the stage an 80 piece orchestra was layered on multiple levels and balconies that gave the feeling of a modern day opera house.
