See yourself at Lincoln Center

TAKEOVERS animate every corner of David Geffen Hall

As part of Lincoln Center Presents, music, dance, theater, visual art, and more collide for a new kind of audience experience this winter—multi-genre festival takeovers at the new David Geffen Hall and Alice Tully Hall. In January, globalFEST celebrates the wonders of a world brimming with music that’s both innovative and deeply rooted. Soon after in February, AFROPUNK + LINCOLN CENTER Black HERstory Live brings the razor's edge in arts and culture, showcasing Black women artists from around the world, in an immersive multidisciplinary experience that pushes the boundaries of art in all its forms.

Collaborative ENCOUNTERS give way to bold new work

Organizations across Lincoln Center and partners throughout the city are teaming up to bring fresh artistry to the mainstage this season. Lincoln Center Presents and The Metropolitan Opera showcase the lesser-heard styles of opera legends Isabel Leonard, accompanied by Pablo Sainz-Villegas, and Will Liverman; and The Juilliard School and New York Philharmonic co-present the Chineke! Orchestra, Europe's first majority-Black and ethnically diverse orchestra. Spring programming culminates with the world premiere of Search for Spring, a large-scale choral work on climate justice, performed by community choirs from across NYC.

Today’s VISIONARIES and innovators take the spotlight

Experience the changemakers of today and luminaries of tomorrow—center stage at premier venues. Poland’s Unsound Festival continues its decade-long relationship with Lincoln Center with the U.S. premiere of Weavings, a group improvisation project curated and conceived by Nicolás Jaar. In February, Bessie Award-winning dance icon Lil Buck takes the stage with Memphis Jookin, showing off the best of jookin, a blend of hip hop and modern that has grown to become one of the contemporary dance world’s most vibrant and vital movements.

Accessibility at Lincoln Center

Our approach to accessibility mirrors our commitment to transform performing arts spaces to be more inclusive of our audiences’ identities and access needs by design. We recognize that access needs must be integrated in the creative process, that the work on our stages reflects our differences and interconnectedness, and that we are creating a space where everyone feels welcome.
