|About Jazz at Lincoln Center
Frederick P. Rose Hall
The challenge was to design the world's first perfomance space built to accomodate jazz
music's unique acoustic demands, while permitting the structural and acoustic flexibility
required to showcase dance, opera, and symphonic music without compromise. The
new home of Jazz at Lincoln Center was envisioned to be the world's most versatile
performing arts center, with the architectural expression of the spirit of jazz punctuated
by the remarkable ability to create the perfect structural and acoustic environments for
other art forms.
Consider Jazz's largest venue, Rose Theater, first as a symphony in the round with
seating towers encircling the stage. Now consider it as a theatrical space, movable
seating towers cleared, the stage open, and the furthest seat in the house only 90 feet
Rose Theater's astonishing box-in-box construction boasts top-rated noise reduction and
variable acoustic design to accomodate all performance needs. Rose's intimate space,
unimaginable clarity of sound and unobstructed views will accent the highest quality
performance in all the arts.
Be one of the first to experience New York's dazzling new performance space,
"conceived for the function and feeling of jazz, engineered for warmth and clarity of
sound and wired for the latest technology."
The Rose Theater is located on the 5th floor of the Time Warner Center at Broadway and 60th St.
