See yourself at Lincoln Center

Celebrate the rich cultural traditions of New York City

The Under the Radar theater festival comes to Lincoln Center in January, connecting New York audiences with the world’s most innovative playwrights and risk-taking work from international performers. This year's globalFEST includes 10 extraordinary artists from around the world, bringing the sounds of Puerto Rico, Spain, Morocco, France, Dominican Republic, Brazil, Mexico, India, South Africa, and Ukraine. Or, hit the dance floor all year-long at the Atrium to top-notch orchestras and major artists in the fields of salsa, Latin jazz, merengue, bachata, boogaloo, and much more, as part of our free ¡VAYA! series.

Rediscover the classics and be wowed by world premieres

Lincoln Center Presents prioritizes an expansive view of artistic excellence and fresh collaborations—on a Choose-What-You-Pay basis. Aficionados of classical arts won't want to miss Mexican operatic tenor Rolando Villazón and French harpist Xavier de Maistre on December 18 and The Movie Music of Terence Blanchard, in collaboration with the New York Philharmonic, on January 28. Works & Process also returns in January with an Underground Uptown Dance Festival, celebrating New York City’s extraordinary club, street, and social dance scene.

Come as you are to welcoming spaces and artistic events

Lincoln 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.
