We begin today on a high kick.

我们今天从一个高腿踢讲起。

The Rockettes closed their annual holiday season run on Monday, their 85th year at Radio City Music Hall in New York. But their famous kicklines are only a part of the storied history of one of New York’s cultural cornerstones.

周一,火箭女郎舞蹈团结束了她们一年一度的节日演出,这是她们在纽约无线电城音乐厅(Radio City Music Hall)表演的第85个年头。但她们著名的踢腿舞仅仅是纽约文化基石丰富历史的一部分。

Opened on Dec. 27, 1932, Radio City was “the largest temple of entertainment of its kind in the world,” The Times (somewhat breathlessly) proclaimed.

无线电城于1932年12月27日开幕,时报(有些屏住气息地)宣布其为“全世界同类中最大的娱乐殿堂”。

It was part of John D. Rockefeller Jr.’s plan to revive New York after the Great Depression by building a “city within a city” that would provide jobs for New Yorkers and convert a neighborhood known as “the speakeasy belt” into a commercial hub.

它是小约翰·D·洛克菲勒(John D. Rockefeller Jr.)在大萧条后通过建造一座“城中之城”重新恢复纽约光辉计划的一部分,该计划将为纽约人提供工作,还能将一个以“地下酒吧带”而著名的社区改造成商业中心。

Rockefeller partnered with the Radio Corporation of America to develop the 6,200-seat theater, and the building’s design became a beacon of the art deco form.

洛克菲勒与美国无线电公司(Radio Corporation of America)结成了伙伴关系,一道开发这个有着6200个座位的剧院,这栋楼的设计也成为了装饰艺术形式的一座灯塔。

The theater has hosted everything from the MTV Video Music Awards to more than 700 movie premieres, including “To Kill a Mockingbird,” starring Gregory Peck, a former Radio City usher.

该剧院举办过的活动从MTV音乐电视颁奖典礼(MTV Video Music Awards)到700多场电影首映式,无所不包。在这里举办过首映式的电影包括由格里高利·派克(Gregory Peck)主演的《杀死一只知更鸟》(To Kill a Mockingbird),而派克曾是无线电城的一位领座员。

Mayor-elect John O’Brien declared the music hall as “the greatest achievement of the theatrical world” and marked “a new era in the history of New York.”

当时的候任市长约翰·奥布莱恩(John O’Brien)宣布这座音乐厅为“戏剧界的最大成就”,并且称它开创了“纽约历史的新时代”。
