The House of Music and Music Theatre (MUMUTH) was built specially for KUG. It was first used in 2009 after a three-year construction period. The spectacular design by Dutch architect, Ben van Berkel, is based on the winning project from an international competition, and is dominated by steel, concrete and glass in various combinations and superimpositions. In 2010 it was awarded the Fischer-von-Erlach Prize and the Urban Land Institute Award. Alongside the large György-Ligeti-Saal, with its unique, variable acoustics, it offers an orchestra rehearsal space and a rehearsal stage, as well as other studios and theatrical infrastructure.
Named after honorary KUG member, György Ligeti, this concert and music theatre hall features highly innovative and variable acoustics, modern light design and a completely flexible seating system.
The orchestra rehearsal space with platform, located on the ground floor of the MUMUTH, is also used as an events room.
The rehearsal stage for the Institute of Musical Theatre is located on the third floor of the MUMUTH. The studio has a magnificent view of the KUG campus and its surroundings.
