Passport to the Arts

Designed for children, teens and adults with disabilities and their families, Passport to the Arts provides a welcoming, accessible, and affordable introduction to the performing arts at Lincoln Center at no cost.  Join us for a variety of programs with American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the New York Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera Guild, The Metropolitan Opera, CO/LAB Theater Group, Lincoln Center Theater, and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Families can attend dance, music or drama classes, watch exclusive performances, and check out behind-the-scenes content.  

All our virtual programs take place on Zoom, are inclusively designed, and open exclusively to families with children, teens or adults with disabilities.  Families will receive pre-visit materials, including social narratives, photos and links, before each program.   

This season we are welcoming back families to a limited number of in-person indoor performances. Check the presenting organization for COVID-19 vaccination requirements and protocols.
