The Aula is the University of Pretoria's main hall and site of ceremonies. It was designed by Karel Jooste and completed in 1958. The Aula was the first Opera House to be built in Pretoria and remained the major venue in the city until the State Theatre's completion in the early 1980s. The 1,012-seat auditorium has played host to foreign dignitaries, presidents, local and international artists.
