Long Center for the Performing Arts Austin History

Looking for a classical concert? Opera? How about a play? Any time Austin's residents are looking for a grand theater space, they can always count on seeing something great at the Michael and Susan Dell Hall at the Long Center. A state of the art facility, the Long Center opened in 2008 after a decade of planning and millions of dollars. The Long Center's history begins in 1998, when Austin's voters decided to approve a renovation of Palmer Auditorium, a building that had been serving the community since 1959. At first, planners designed a four-venue project to take its place, costing $110 million. In time, a two theater facility—including the Michael and Susan Dell Hall and Debra and Kevin Rollins Studio Theatre—was approved for $77 million. Concert halls don't get any better than this! This amazing state-of-the-art facility can seat 2,400 people on three floors. Seating wraps around the walls, ensuring a good view from anywhere in the venue.

People have been coming together to enjoy live music and theatrical performances in cultures around the world for a countless number of years. If you think about it, live performance is the true foundation of many art forms, and really the art's purest form. It can be an epic experience to see a show in a huge amphitheater with thousands upon thousands of fans surrounding you, or it can be an intimate experience in a smaller venue in which you can really connect with everyone in the building. Either way, seeing a show live and in person always amounts to more than just listening to music or watching actors on stage. When you head out to see a creative spectacle hit the stage at this venue, you're sure to become enveloped by the entire experience of seeing a musical act or play that you know and love while surrounded by fellow adoring fans that have at least that one thing in common. And often times, when it comes to art, that one thing is enough to bring people together.
