“Marvelous. Everyone needs to experience it at least once!”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Beautiful. Acoustically near perfect. Wonderful venue for the fine arts. There are, of course, several venues at Lincoln Center. All are equally fabulous. Shakespeare, Balanchine & the Met all astound.

“The Nutcracker at Lincoln Center”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

First time I have seen this live. Wonderful. If you sit in the center of the theater it doesn't matter how high up you are. This is a great show for people of all ages. The cast had children as young as 8. I will go again next year.

“A New York must-visit”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

The Lincoln Center is a world-renowned center for the arts for good reason. The venue is superb, the performances are excellent, and the overall experience is always memorable. From the grandeur of the operas to the more low key but still impressive classical concerts. The Lincoln Center attracts the best talent and is worth a visit every time

“All Performing Arts”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

A beautiful fountain is the centeplace of the Plaza that contains the New York State theatre, Metropolitan Opera, Avery Fisher Hall, Theatrical Library, and the Lincoln Center Theatre all in one area.
Spectacular productions almost every night all year around with an underground car park. Lincoln Center is also very convenient to local transportation including busses and a subway stop underground that leads directly to all the theatres without going outside. Take the subway to the 66 street stop on the #1 Subway line, very convenient in inclement weather.

“The Nutcracker at Lincoln Center”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

The Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is a classic destination, not to be missed whether a tourist on your first visit to the Big Apple or a local visiting for the upteenth time. It is beautifully conceived in its location and architecture, and convenient to public transportation. There are many venues to see, and options to enjoy the performing arts. We saw The Nutcracker at the David H. Koch theater on this visit, and thoroughly enjoyed the inspiring performance. There really is not a bad seat in the house - just maybe some a little too far away from the stage to see a performance without opera glasses. The music is thoroughly enjoyable. It will make a ballet-lover out of just about anyone!
