The Rose is a vibrant, active hub for emerging and established artists and arts. Performances range from edgy to elegant and provocative to traditional. The Rose is home to Gina Bachauer International Piano Foundation, Plan-B Theatre Company, Pygmalion Productions, Repertory Dance Theatre, Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company, and SB Dance.

In addition to the Resident’s work, the Rose hosts modern dance, theater, classical music, ballet, student recitals, and even U.S. Naturalization ceremonies. In addition, the Rose is an active film venue, hosting Utah Film Center events and festivals year-round and the Sundance Film Festival each January.

The Rose was born from a dream by the Performing Arts Coalition, a group of local arts organizations, who envisioned a venue where artists could experiment, create and perform their art and offer their patrons an intimate experience in intimate performance spaces. Through their tenacity, generous donors, and the support of Salt Lake County, the dream became a reality in 1997.
