Lincoln Center, opened in 1964, has been a mecca for the performing arts in the TriState Area. I've reviewed the Metropolitan Opera separately. My current rave review is for Alice Tully Hall, home of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center which plays host fo innumerable performances throughout the year. The auditorium, rebuilt a decade or so ago, has fine accoustics and excellent sightlines, with state-of-the-art lighting. While it is handicapped accessible, access for us ambulatory folks requires descending stairs outside the building, while inside there are more stairs from the lobby down to the auditorium and then up or down depending on where your seat is. The cafe in the outer lobby is crowded before performances, serving a variety of sandwiches and other prepared foods as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. There is a movable bar in the auditorium lobby for use before performances and during intermission. Alice Tully is a perfect venue for chamber music, organ performances, and small choral works. The rest of Lincoln Center consits of Avery Fisher Hall where the New York Philharmonic performs; orchestra seating has good accoustics and sightlines, but the seats in the three tiers of boxes which line the side walls all have partial vision although good accoustics. if you want to be immersed in the music, sit in Box 1 or Box 2 in the Third Tier where you'll be right over the orchestra and feel the sound the way the conductor does. Then there's the renovated David Koch (aka New York State Theater), now the home of the acclaimed New York City Ballet and the former home of the late-lamented New York City Opera, whose demise I am still mourning. And yes, there's the Vivian Beaumont Theater for drama, and the Performing Arts Library with its fine collections. The Damrosch Bandshell in the SW corner is used for various outdoor performances in season, while its plaza hosts the Big Apple Circus annually. And I mustn't forget the Film Society of Lincoln Center with its superb movie theater down the street from Alice Tully, or the Jazz at Lincoln Center suite of performing spaces down at Columbus Circle. Every day of the week there's something special going on.
