Multi-genre TAKEOVERS enliven David Geffen Hall

As part of Lincoln Center Presents, music, dance, theater, and visual arts collide to make a big splash at expansive day-long festivals at the new David Geffen Hall and sprawling across campus—offering the unique chance to immerse yourself in thematic programming. Scheduled takeovers include: AFROPUNK + LINCOLN CENTER Black HERstory Live, globalFEST, and David Geffen Hall: Open House & Open House: Family Day celebrations.

Unexpected ENCOUNTERS give way to bold new work

Organizations across Lincoln Center are teaming up to bring fresh artistry to the mainstage, starting with Etienne Charles' San Juan Hill: A New York Story. The Metropolitan Opera's The Other Side of the Stars showcases the unheard styles of Isabel Leonard & 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. 

Today’s VISIONARIES and innovators take the spotlight

Experience the changemakers of today and luminaries of tomorrow—center stage at premier venues. Song of the Ambassadors, a groundbreaking opera incorporating AI; Nicolás Jaar's Weavings, an adventurous and experimental group improvisation; and Migguel Anggelo's newest theater-dance production, English with an Accent, all take flight this fall.

Stand Up for Heroes returns!

Stand Up for Heroes returns to honor our nation’s impacted veterans and their families, on November 7 at 8:00 pm ET at David Geffen Hall. The event will feature performances by comedians and musicians including Amber Iman, The Lumineers, Hasan Minhaj, Jeff Ross, Iliza Shlesinger, Bruce Springsteen, and Jon Stewart. Learn more »
