Rose Theater

Located on the fifth floor of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall in the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle, Rose Theater is the venue’s largest performing arts space. It features three levels, sleek wood veneer seating boxes, and moveable stage towers that can be configured for a theater-in-the-round or a traditional proscenium look. The theater accommodates everything from jazz concerts to opera, theater, symphonies, and dance, as well as conferences, product launches, film screenings, and award ceremonies. The stage hosts an international roster of jazz luminaries including regular performances of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, as well as shows from Lincoln Center Festival, Mostly Mozart Festival, and Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival. Frederick P. Rose Hall opened in 2004 as the world’s first facility entirely devoted to jazz, and especially designed for the warmth and clarity of the sound of jazz.
