Spotlight On: Black History Month

This February, Lincoln Center is presenting live events from resident organizations and sharing an on-demand collection of past performances and talks highlighting the history and experience of Black individuals from a multitude of cultures and contexts. In-person programming includes Lincoln Center Theater's brand new opera Intimate Apparel, the New York Philharmonic concert Authentic Selves: The Beauty Within, and nationwide film screenings of The Metropolitan Opera's Fire Shut Up in My Bones.

If you are unable to attend an in-person event, we encourage you to engage with our on-demand content below, which features dynamic commissions that address pressing social issues, educational pieces that bring history to life, and compositions that fuse a rich array of influences—all rendered with breathtaking artistry. These beautifully varied, multifaceted performances and conversations amplify the stories and perspectives of Black people, spanning the spectrum of joy, pain, reflection, and hope.

We hope that you'll continue to revisit these important pieces all year long. Expect more new commissions and opportunities for dialogue centered on the Black experience in the coming months.
