“Superb American Ballet Theater's Romeo & Juliet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

I decided to pony up $70 each for the tickets--and I was not sorry. The seats in the Dress Circle of the Metropolitan Opera House are raked so everyone has an unobstructed view. The stage sets were magnificent, as was the large orchestra. The dancers were superb and we were especially impressed by the ensemble sword fights. Last but not least, the score by Prokofiev is wonderful.

“An unforgettable Swan Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

In an astonishing venue, preceded by a beautiful fountain, the Swan Lake (Kochetkova-Cornejo, 06/21/13) was an unforgettable performance of my best beloved ballet. Everything was perfect: the acting and the technique of the main dancers and the corp de ballet, the dresses, the scenery, the curtains and the extremely professional orchestra playing the must beautiful of Tchaikovsky's creations.

“Behind the scenes tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

We had an interesting tour of the Lincoln Center theaters including the Opera, Avery Fisher Hall, etc. We were lucky to have a guide who was the wife of the first violinist of the NY Philharmonic and she shared many interesting vignettes about celebrities she had met. A wonderful overview of Lincoln Center for those who know it well and those who have never been there.

“Gorgeous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

This is unbeatable in my mind. Gorgeous and such great atmosphere and a variety of offerings. Opera, plays, concerts for adults and children and whatever else you can think of as entertainment. Again, just love it. Saw my first opera here.

“WOW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

We attended a performance of the NY Philharmonic & were just absolutely blown away. What an incredible orchestra & the Avery Fisher Hall was amazing. We also took a behind the scenes tour of Lincoln Center that was spectacular...all of the venues are gorgeous & built for the specific programs held in each.
