The Smith Center for the Performing Arts is a new-construction, multi-purpose performing arts facility designed to host music, theatre and dance companies and to serve as the home of the Las Vegas Philharmonic and Nevada Ballet Theater. The facility houses three major performance spaces – Reynolds Hall, Troesh Studio Theater and Cabaret Jazz – as well as gracious patron spaces and ample production support, office and educational space. The Smith Center is the first performing arts center of its size and scope to obtain a LEED Gold rating.
In designing The Smith Center for the Performing Arts, DMSAS looked for a style indigenous to Las Vegas that was representative of the city and its history. In that search, it was obvious the greatest achievement in the area was the Hoover Dam. Massing, iconography and the exquisite detailing throughout the Symphony Park campus take cues from the Dam.
The largest building in The Smith Center complex is Reynolds Hall, which houses a state-of-the-art 2,050 seat multi-purpose hall, in addition to several levels of lobbies and beautifully detailed front-of-house spaces.
