We were part of a guided tour with a high school choral group. Our guide was great, very knowledgeable. We were taken into Avery Fisher Hall where the guide pointed out several interesting sites. When we went into the hall itself, another group of the same high school choral students were having their tour. Our guide let the director lead... More

You can book the guided tour next day so its easy to get the most suitable time. The guide was a nice young man with lots of stories to tell. The tour (1 h 15 min) opened doors to places which are not reachable otherwise.

Saw Sweeney Todd in Avery Fisher Hall. The production itself was excellent. The theater wasn't really a great venue for the medium, though. I suppose it's fine for the Philharmonic concerts, where it's more important to be able to hear than see, but for a musical production, it's not good. It's a big cube with seats on orchestra level, and... More

We saw Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra's tribute to Dave Brubeck and it was excellent! Best jazz orchestra on the planet and the music, of course was great. Beautiful, well designed theatre. Several restaurants available with views of Columbus Circle.

We went to the exhibition of "The history of the Beatles" at the Lincoln center and we enjoyed every moment of it. The musical tools, the pictures, the live shoews - everything was very excited and brought us back some years ago. Great!

We visited on a very wet and windy day and were grateful to get away from the rain, more importantly we really enjoyed the visit. There is a Beatles exhibition currently running until early Summer that's well worth a visit, especially if you are a Beatles fan. The memorabilia on show is impressive. One thing, I tried several times to... More
