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.
