Es considerado como el teatro más importante del país, y se le da el apodo "Showplace of the Nation" ("Sitio del Más Interés Turístico en la Nación"). Fue inaugurado el 27 de diciembre de 1932 y, por un tiempo, fue considerado como el primer destino turístico de la ciudad de Nueva York. En su escenario, el espectáculo "Radio City Christmas Spectacular" ha sido presentado anualmente desde 1933. Su interior fue declarado como un punto de referencia del ciudad en 1978. El complejo de 12 acres (49 000 m²) en Midtown Manhattan, que es actualmente conocido como el Rockefeller Center, fue desarrollado entre 1929 y 1940 por el filántropo John D. Rockefeller Jr., sobre un terreno arrendado de la Universidad de Columbia. El Radio City Music Hall fue diseñado por el arquitecto Edward Durell Stone y el diseñador de interiores Donald Deskey en el estilo art decó. El nombre originalmente previsto para el teatro fue International Music Hall.2​ Los nombres "Radio City" y "Radio City Music Hall" se derivan de uno de los primeros inquilinos del complejo, la Radio Corporation of America. El Radio City Music Hall fue un proyecto de Rockefeller; Samuel Roxy Rothafel, quien previamente había abierto el Roxy Theatre en 1927; y el presidente de RCA, David Sarnoff. RCA había desarrollado numerosos estudios para la NBC en el 30 de Rockefeller Plaza, justo al sur del Music Hall, y el complejo de la radiotelevisión que prestó al Music Hall su nombre sigue siendo conocido como los NBC Radio City Studios. El Music Hall se abrió al público el 27 de diciembre de 1932 con un espectáculo escénico presentado por Ray Bolger, Doc Rockwell, y Martha Graham. La apertura estaba destinado a ser un retorno a entretenimiento de variedad de la primera clase. El nuevo formato no fue un éxito. El programa era muy largo y las actuaciones individuales se perdían en el salón cavernoso. El 11 de enero de 1933, el Music Hall optó por el formato más familiar entonces de proyectar una película con un espectáculo escénico ejecutado por Rothafel en el Roxy Theatre de Nueva York. La primera película que se mostró en la pantalla gigante fue The Bitter Tea of General Yen, dirigida por Frank Capra y protagonizada por Barbara Stanwyck, y el Music Hall se convirtió en el lugar habitual para los estrenos de las películas del estudio RKO Pictures. El formato de "película de cine con espectáculo escénico" continuó en el Music Hall hasta el año 1979, con cuatro pases completos cada día. En la década de 1970, los cambios en el mercado de distribución de cine hizo difícil para el Radio City asegurar reservas exclusivas de muchas películas; además, el teatro optó por mostrar sólo películas calificadas para todos los públicos (denominadas en inglés como "G-rated"), lo que limitó aún más sus opciones de películas a medida que avanzaba la década. La exhibición habitual de cine en el Radio City terminó en 1979. Se hicieron planes para convertir el teatro en un espacio de oficinas, pero una combinación de interés por la conservación del lugar e intereses comerciales dio lugar a la conservación del Radio City que en 1980, después de una renovación, reabrió sus puertas al público. En noviembre de 1988, se presentaron en el teatro dos semanas de episodios de Wheel of Fortune, que estaba tomando su primer viaje por carretera. El locutor de Saturday Night Live, Don Pardo, anunció durante esas dos semanas. El órgano icónico del teatro, el "Mighty Wurlitzer" (véase más abajo), fue usado para tocar el tema musical del programa, "Changing Keys", a lo largo de cada episodio, excepto al fin. El Radio City Music Hall es actualmente arrendado a, y gestionado por, Madison Square Garden, Inc.3​ Ocasionalmente se programan en el Radio City estrenos de largometrajes, como los de la serie de películas de Harry Potter, pero la explotación del teatro a lo largo de todo el año está enfocada sobre todo en la programación de conciertos y espectáculos escénicos en vivo. The Radio City Christmas Spectacular, que se ha presentado todos los años desde 1933, continúa siendo un evento anual de gran importancia (véase más abajo para detalles). En el Radio City Music Hall se han hecho presentaciones de una mayoría de líderes de la música pop y rock de los últimos 30 años, así como eventos televisados ​​incluyendo los Premios Grammy, los Premios Tony, los MTV Video Music Awards, y el draft de la NFL. Radio City tiene 5.931 asientos para los espectadores, y asientos adicionales pueden ser colocados en el ascensor pozo durante los eventos que no requieren esa cantidad de espacio, llevando la capacidad de asientos a más de 6.000; se convirtió en el mayor teatro de cine en el mundo en el momento de su inauguración. Diseñado por Edward Durell Stone, el interior del teatro, con sus líneas austeras del estilo art decó, representó una ruptura con el ornamento ornado tradicional de rococó que fue asociado con palacios del cine en ese momento. Los arcos irradiandos del proscenio unieron el gran auditorio, lo que permitió una sensación de tanto intimidad como grandeza. La decoración interior fue creada por el diseñador Donald Deskey. Los diseños geométricos de art decó aprovisionados por Deskey incorporan vidrio, aluminio, cromo y cuero en el adorno para los revestimientos de pared, alfombras, lámparas, y muebles del teatro. Su trabajo endeudó fuertemente del estilo estético de Europa Moderna, de lo cual fue el exponente más importante en los Estados Unidos. es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radio_City_Music_Hall Radio City Music Hall is an entertainment venue located in Rockefeller Center in New York City. Nicknamed the Showplace of the Nation, it was for a time the leading tourist destination in the city. Its interior was declared a city landmark in 1978, and the venue is notable as the headquarters for the precision dance company, the Rockettes. The 12-acre (4.9 ha) complex in Midtown Manhattan known as Rockefeller Center was developed between 1929 and 1940 by John D. Rockefeller, Jr., on land leased from Columbia University. The Radio City Music Hall was designed by architect Edward Durell Stone and interior designer Donald Deskey in the Art Deco style. Its originally planned name was International Music Hall.[3] The names "Radio City" and "Radio City Music Hall" derive from one of the complex's first tenants, the Radio Corporation of America (RCA). Radio City Music Hall was a project of Rockefeller; Samuel Roxy Rothafel, who previously opened the Roxy Theatre in 1927; and RCA chairman David Sarnoff. RCA had developed numerous studios for NBC at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, just to the south of the Music Hall, and the radio-TV complex that lent the Music Hall its name is still known as the NBC Radio City Studios. The Music Hall opened to the public on December 27, 1932 with a lavish stage show featuring Ray Bolger, Doc Rockwell and Martha Graham. The opening was meant to be a return to high-class variety entertainment. However, the new format was not a success. The program was very long, and individual acts were lost in the cavernous hall. On January 11, 1933, the Music Hall converted to the then-familiar format of a feature film, with a spectacular stage show perfected by Rothafel at the Roxy Theatre in New York City. The first film shown on the giant screen was Frank Capra's The Bitter Tea of General Yen, starring Barbara Stanwyck, and the Music Hall became the premiere showcase for films from the RKO-Radio Studio. The film-plus-stage-spectacle format continued at the Music Hall until 1979, with four complete performances presented every day. By the 1970s, changes in film distribution made it difficult for Radio City to secure exclusive bookings of many films; furthermore, the theatre preferred to show only G-rated movies, which further limited their film choices as the decade wore on.[4] On January 5, 1978, Alton Marshall, president of Rockefeller Center, announced that due to a projected loss of $3.5 million for the upcoming year Radio City Music Hall would close its doors on April 12.[5] Plans for alternate uses for the structure included converting the theater into tennis courts, a shopping mall, or the American Stock Exchange.[6] Upon hearing the announcement, Rosemary Novellino, Dance Captain of the Radio City Music Hall Ballet Company, motivated a group of dedicated colleagues and friends to form The Showpeople's Committee to Save Radio City Music Hall. Joining forces with the media and political allies, including New York Lt. Gov. Mary Anne Krupsak,[7] they challenged the Rockefeller establishment, against all odds, to save "The Showplace of the Nation". A monologue by Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show, an irate commentary on Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" given by John Belushi, local news, "The Today Show", and perhaps most importantly, an appearance by Showpeople's Committee members Rosemary Novellino and Ron Hokuff on "The Tomorrow Show" with Tom Snyder mobilized love for the Music Hall nationally. On March 28, 1978 New York City's Landmarks Preservation Commission designated the interior of Radio City Music Hall a landmark guaranteeing that the building would remain a theatre.[8] On May 12, 1978, Radio City Music Hall was placed on The National Register of Historic Places.[9] Regular film showings at Radio City ended in 1979 l. In 1980, after a renovation, it reopened to the public. Radio City Music Hall is currently leased to and managed by The Madison Square Garden Company.[10] Movie premieres and feature runs have occasionally taken place there such as the Harry Potter film series, but the focus of the theater throughout the year is now on concerts and live stage shows, and the Radio City Christmas Spectacular continues to be an important annual event (see below). The Music Hall has presented most of the leading pop and rock performers of the last 30 years, as well as televised events including the Grammy Awards, the Tony Awards, the Daytime Emmy Awards, the MTV Video Music Awards, and the NFL Draft. Starting in 2013, however, the Tony Awards will be the only major televised awards ceremony at Radio City, as the Video Music Awards relocated permanently to the Barclays Center that year. (The Grammys, which alternated between New York City and Hollywood, has been held since 2004 in Los Angeles, as have the Daytime Emmys, off and on, since 2006.) Design Radio City has 5,933 seats for spectators, and additional seating can be placed on the pit elevator during events that do not require that space bringing the seating capacity to over 6,000.[citation needed] Designed by Edward Durell Stone, the interior of the theater with its austere Art Deco lines represented a break with the traditional ornate rococo ornament associated with movie palaces at the time. The radiating arches of the proscenium united the large auditorium, allowing a sense of intimacy as well as grandeur. The interior decor was created by designer Donald Deskey. Deskey's geometric Art Deco designs incorporate glass, aluminum, chrome, and leather in the ornament for the theater's wall coverings, carpet, light fixtures, and furniture. He commissioned textile designers Marguerita Mergentime and Ruth Reeves to create carpet designs and designs for the fabrics covering the walls.[11][12] The Great Stage, designed by Peter Clark, measures 66.5 by 144 ft (20.3 by 43.9 m), and resembles a setting sun.[13] Its system of elevators was so advanced that the U.S. Navy incorporated identical hydraulics in constructing World War II aircraft carriers; according to Radio City lore, during the war, government agents guarded the basement to assure the Navy's technological advantage.[14] This elevator system was also designed by Peter Clark, and was built by Otis Elevators. The public areas of the Music Hall feature the work of many depression era artists. The large mural in the grand foyer is entitled "Fountain of Youth" and was painted by Ezra Winter. The murals on the wall of the grand lounge are collectively known as the "Phantasmagoria of the Theater" by Louis Bouche.[15] Three female nudes cast in aluminum were commissioned for the music hall, however Roxy Rothafel thought that they were inappropriate for a family venue.[16] Although the Rockefellers loved the sculptures, the only one that was displayed on opening night was "Goose Girl" by Robert Laurent, which is currently on the first mezzanine. Since opening night the other two sculptures have been put on display at the music hall, "Eve" by Gwen Lux is currently displayed in the southwest corner of the grand foyer, and "Spirit of the Dance" by William Zorach is currently on display in the Grand lounge.[15] Each of the Public restrooms have adjoining lounges that display various works of art.[17] Stuart Davis, Witold Gordon, Edward "Buk" Ulrich, Henry Billings and Donald Deskey all have art displayed in these lounges. Georgia O'Keeffe was asked to paint a mural for the second mezzanine lady's lounge, however she never completed the mural. The reason for her withdrawal is subject to debate. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radio_City_Music_Hall
