U of M to Open Revitalized Northrop with American Ballet Theatre, 4/4

November 21
9:32 2013

New role in day-to-day campus life:

The new Northrop will be a premier venue for the performing arts and a multipurpose cultural center that is well integrated into Twin Cities campus academic life. It will feature a 2,700-seat main performance theater that provides a more intimate and improved experience for audience members, with better sight lines, vastly improved acoustics and state-of-the-art technology. The new Northrop will also feature a more intimate and interactive 168-seat theater for performances, lectures, films and other events. Northrop will continue its role as a central gathering place for important campus and community events, such as graduation ceremonies and lectures by world-renowned leaders.

Northrop's role in the day-to-day life of the Twin Cities campus will be greatly enhanced. Three resident academic programs-the University Honors Program, the Institute for Advanced Study and the College of Design's Travelers Innovation Lab-will move into expanded space for collaborative learning. Expansions also provide for gallery space, a café and coffee bar, study lounges, two lecture halls and a performance practice room, which together significantly increase study and multipurpose space for faculty, staff, students and the public.
