Lincoln Center is beautiful and the Koch is a fabulous venue for ballet. The ABT performed and was marvelous. Misty Copeland was breathtaking. I literally almost stopped breathing.

If you can visit Lincoln Center please do- it's classic NYC! Even if you don't see a show here, go walk around the square!

Consistently provides the best talent and programs anywhere. Avery Fisher Hall is for the NY Philharmonic and provides an excellent venue to see the symphony with acoustics to match. Be certain to visit for the best in performing arts.

This a new play by Sarah Ruhl. It is a thought provoking look at the conflict between cultures, generations, and sexes.

The Center is a large complex of theaters. The two outstanding ones are the Metropolitan Opera and the Avery Fisher Hall. The latter houses the stage where The New York Philharmonic plays, under the authoritative and gracious baton of Alan Gilbert, its young Maestro.

We saw Alice in Wonderland ballet performed by the Royal Ballet of Canada in the David Koch Theater. The house was full but we had great seats. The sets were fantastic sets. The dancing was wonderful dancing. Overall, transporting!

We went to see Carmen. The Center was beautiful and I loved the lights there. Arrive early to stop by the wine bar or coffee bar. Great place to people watch. Anything goes there- people were in jeans and hiking boots and others in evening gowns.
