We had a great tour with a very knowledgeable guide who took us through 4 of the key buildings in the main complex. She had great nuggets about the history of each building and, because she studied music at Manhattan School of Music and is an opera singer, she treated us to an impromptu rendition from Carmen to show us...

I am a frequent visitor to Lincoln Center- most recently I saw Oslo at the Mitzi Newhouse Theatre. It was terrific!! It is moving upstaits to the Beaumont theater in a few months, so don't miss it. My favorite thing to do at Lincoln Center is to go to the Metropolitan Opera- you can get tickets for under $40, especially... More

The political drama, "Oslo," is playing through August 28th in the Mitzi Newhouse Theatre. This is a gripping telling of the secret negotiations, begun by a Norwegian diplomat and her husband, between Israel and the PLO that ended with the historic Oslo Accords. The show is three hours, with two intermissions, but the material is so absorbing and beautifully acted... More

There are many wonderful performances in the buildings in the Center, too many to list, and many wonderful experiences. The fountain is always emchanting and part of the fun is seeing if one of the sprays is not working properly. Tonight two of them were obviously over pressurized.

If you love classical music and live anywhere within the flying distance of New York City, you need to come here at least once. If you happen to be in NYC in July-August, you will be in for a special treat. The Mostly Mozart Festival is the time to hear wonderful music and discover great new artists.

Lincoln Center is such an integral part of the Arts part of New York that it screams nostalgia. It's beautiful building edifice houses the stage for many thousands of operas and concerts. I myself was fortunate enough to have seen the performances of Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti years ago. I have many fond memories of this place.

We went to see OSLO which was fantastic and highly recommended. Catch it on Broadway. I see a lot of theatre all over the world and this was possibly the worst when it comes to staff attitude and manners. We were late, no problem, and we were chilled about it. Picked up tickets at the box office and found the... More

Lincoln Center Out of Doors has an amazing summer line up of free concerts. I was thrilled to walk into a Patti Smith concert when I was getting ballet tickets for another evening. Patti Smith was wonderful ... I highly recommend checking out their summer bands!
