See yourself at Lincoln Center
Celebrate the rich cultural traditions of New York CityThis October, the Festival of Firsts returns—showcasing artists embarking on new journeys and celebrating significant moments in their careers: premiere performances in the U.S. and NYC, Lincoln Center debuts, album debuts, and fresh collaborations. On October 13 and 14, be enchanted by the interplay of words, sounds, and visuals, as artists push the boundaries of what is possible in the realm of performance poetry with our first-ever Poetry Festival. In November, the Latin Wave Festival presents their popular Latine Composers Showcase, FUTUROS, New Ideas in Composition, for three nights—all for free, tickets not required!
Re-discover the classics and be wowed by world premieresLincoln Center Presents prioritizes an expansive view of artistic excellence all season long. Choreographer Akram Khan rethinks the colonizer-centric perspective of The Jungle Book, retelling the story of the young girl Mowgli as a refugee child stranded by the cruel realities of climate change. Gospel, funk, soul, and Afrobeat come together in a joyful interpretation of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, The Sound of Music, this time viewed through a utopian, afrofuturistic lens. Aficionados of classical arts won't want to miss Les Arts Florissants' spectacular production of Henry Purcell's The Fairy Queen and Philip Glass's The Complete Piano Etudes—both running this November with a Choose-What-You-Pay ticketing model.
Come as you are to welcoming spaces and artistic eventsLincoln Center is committed to integrating access needs in the creative process and creating a space where everyone feels welcome. This fall, we invite kids, teens, and families to discover a love for the arts, including Gimme Please, with a weekend designed specifically for babies/toddlers and another for neurodivergent audiences. Our free legacy programs return for the fall and winter season: Lincoln Center Moments, designed for those with dementia and their caregivers; and Passport to the Arts, bringing live performances from across campus to children, teens, and adults with disabilities.
