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 way.

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.

By subway: Take the A, B, C, D, #1 or #9 trains to 59th Street/Columbus Circle.

By bus: The M5, M7, M10, M11 and M104 bus lines all stop within one block of Jazz at Lincoln Center.
