Whatever is playing, book it. The various theaters and companies, the symphony and the opera of course, but all of the visiting companies and performers as well are among the best in the world. Tickets are expensive but worth the price.

Seeing "Swan Lake" by the Bolshoi Ballet, performed at Lincoln Center was a once-in-a-life experience, and it was fantastic. A beautiful performance at a beautiful location.

August 6 was an extended glorious outdoor evening with Emmylou Harris and her guys, Rodney Crowell & Robert Ellis. August 7 was Mark Morris premiere at Mostly Mozart doing Acis and Galetea. I was fourth row at David Koch so my sight line was perfection. Two fantastic evenings at Lincoln Center.

Disappointed we couldn't see all the original Stradivari's and instruments this ensemble masters. Act II better, except for sleeping scene duet. I wanted less movement and attention to music in Act I. Memorable and great attempt for a wonderful dance group.

we sat in the first row of the upper balcony and could barely hear the dialog. Most of what we could hear, we could not understand. The sound engineer did not do his / her job. interesting, but that's it

Performed in a combine international choir for The Cry of Jeremiah in May. The facilities is really well kept and the stage was beautiful. It was a couple levels underground. What stands out most is the organ. Wow. The acoustics in the building is great so sound was really pleasing to audience.

I have to admit I had never visited the Lincoln Center and had the privilege of seeing the American Ballet Theatre production of the Swan Lake. What a treat! The theater in itself is a gem so high, imposing balconies. The staging incredible, the performance flawless and delicate. If in the city try to see a performance so you may... More
