If you love music and have 3 days in The City, you could come here all 3 nights and see /hear something completely different every night. Opera, ballet, jazz, classical... it is so hard to choose!

I went and saw the Mostly Mozart program and it was amazing! It was my first time going to Lincoln Center and it will not be my last! I was able to get great tickets at a reasonable price from a third party website and was glad that I went. I only wish that I had known about the exhibit... More

Fashion Week was ongoing while I visited NY, and part was held here. That added pizzazz to what was already a favorite spot for me in the city--so many memories of wonderful shared cultural experiences.

We selected the art and architecture specialty tour specifically because that is what interested us most. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the ballet, opera, and orchestra. We talked a bit about the architecture and some of the art pieces, but most of the tour was about the companies and their performances.

Whether you visit Lincoln Center to actually see a production or just stroll around, it's worth the trip to the west side of manhattan. The arrangement of buildings is beautiful as is the central square. You can then walk up broadway and discover the beautiful upper west side.

Pick a show, pick a performance and go. Have seen many shows at this lovely theatre; especially enjoyed The Nutcracker. Worth seeing that performance just to see the tree climb up from the stage.

I had tickets to go see the ballet. Despite being in the afternoon the experience was priceless. Loved it. Can't wait to go again.

This great NYC landmark, with the fabulous fountain and wonderful theaters and Opera House and Philharmonic Hall has also a great sandwich shop and restaurant and a cute Gift Shop and Library. It is a good meeting place to rendezvous with your friends too, anytime of the day.

Came here for the Barber de Seville performance, and I was not dissapointed. The staff are very helpful, the seats are comfortable and the snack bar had very good choices. I look forward to coming back for another opera.
