Trip to NYC centered on seeing Elina Garanca as Carmen. Spectacular performance by her and the entire cast in a stunning venue!

The best opera in the world is at the Met. The productions were incredible, the voices were amazing and the entire experience is so above anywhere else as to be in a class by itself.

As a native New Yorker Lincon Center remains one of the most exquisite spots in NYC. Take in an opera, ballet or concert and you will be enthralled.

Our first trip to the Lincoln Center and our first live jazz show. We had seats on the 3rd level and they were good for the show. Sound was perfect and the show was amazing.

Loooooooved the entire experience! Mainly went to see my favorite musician, Jose Gonzalez at Lincoln Center and it was amazing. I'm a stickler for being courteous and considerate of the audience everywhere I go and expecting others to do the same, and you could hear a pin drop during his performance.

The New York City Ballet and the Metropolitan Opera share these facilities. Both of them are well worth seeing while you are in New York City.
