Lincoln Center
Iconic Performances on a Beautiful Campus

Lincoln Center

Due to its reputation and location, Lincoln Center is one of the most iconic performing arts institutions in the world. It’s definitely a place worth exploring on your trip to New York. From world-class opera productions to beautiful ballets to film analysis: no matter which art form you prefer, there’s a spot in Lincoln Center for you to find like-minded folk. The luxurious arched Met Opera (behind the great fountain) blends gifted singers with visionary directors to promise you a night to remember. Every great operatic voice, from Placido Domingo to Renee Fleming, has graced its stage at some point! Especially noteworthy are the sparkling chandeliers that decorate the ceiling of the lobby. There is also a well-stocked gift shop here for all your “music nerd” needs.

Alice Tully Hall plays host to the annual New York Film Festival and Lincoln Center’s Chamber Music Society. In addition, the David H. Koch Theater is home of the New York City Ballet and annual Mostly Mozart Festivals. Also on the campus is the lauded Juilliard School and that is where future stars are made.

Furthermore, LC’s resident production company is Lincoln Center Theater. This organization puts on a variety of theatrical works in their three venues. The Claire Tow and Mitzi Newhouse Theatres are quite compact. However, their Broadway house, the Vivian Beaumont, is one of the largest theatres in the city. Shows that have played there include Tony-winning productions of The Light in the Piazza, South Pacific, and The King and I. Nestled in between are parks, studios, the extensive Library of the Performing Arts, and many more sites to whet your cultural appetite. The latter of these is a branch of the New York Public Library and has a lot of theatre memorabilia on display. In addition, one can even watch archival clips of old shows here (typically by appointment only).
