Went to see Spartacus at David Koch theater and it was incredible. Lincoln is beautiful, modern, and centrally located. I absolutely love coming here.

Obviously a world class cultural venue, but a really lovely spot to get away from the hustle and bustle and have a nice walk; it's one of the cleanest places in the city.

Every year Lincoln Center hosts visiting performers in opera, ballet...etc. My mother and I saw the Bolshoi Ballet and Opera Company perform Swan Lake at the David H. Koch Theatre. It was the best performance I have ever seen... the costumes were sumptuous.. especially in the third act . Anna Niculina as Oddete was outstanding. She was able to express... More

I have been able to be in each building for the Ballet, opera and the philharmonic. This is a must visit. I loved each building individually, they are all very different. I could not recommend going to see a performance. Even just sitting at the fountain is just beautiful.

Learning from our last year MET experience with the ABT, we decieded no to purchase tickets for their performances. Just by chance we saw that the Boston Ballet is in town. We went to see their performance and it was a great evening. Interesting coreography and good dancers. We enjoyed their performance a lot.

I'm still impressed with the tremendous art space new yorkers have. We always listen about Julliard and Metropolitan Opera. They have this and much more IN A SINGLE SPACE. Incredibly large spaces for a city that expensive, they saved room for boulevards, water mirrors. The restaurant in the middle of all this has a green roof, covered with grass in... More

Even if you're not here to see a show of some sort it's a great spot for people watching. Head over in the early evening so you can see the grounds, and fountain, at dusk and into night time. As night falls the fountain is fully lit and puts on a great show.
