Hammerstein Ballroom History

Hammerstein Ballroom has been a mainstay for Manhattan, New York music lovers for nearly a century, having first opened in 1906. It has achieved a level of renown due in part to its elegantly designed interiors as well as its excellent acoustics.The venue opened as the Manhattan Opera House and hosted opera almost exclusively until 1910 when the Metropolitan Opera paid Oscar Hammerstein not to use the venue as an opera house and he began to stage vaudeville productions along with other theatrical events. The theater changed hands several times over the years and functioned as a Freemason's temple and a union hall. It was briefly named Manhattan Center Studios after it began operating more as a concert hall in the mid-Eighties before changing its name to Hammerstein Ballroom in 1997 when it underwent a large renovation.
