Celebrate the rich cultural traditions of New York City

This September, "La Reina del Barrio" Rhina Valentin hosts a conversation with Emmy-winning filmmaker Sandra Guzman in celebration of Latinx Heritage Month; Son Del Monte brings Cuban charanga to the Atrium with a nonstop social dance party; and oud player Firas Andari performs a stunning program of maqam music from the Middle East, Egypt, Turkey, and North Africa. In November, the Latin Wave Festival presents their popular Latine Composers Showcase, FUTUROS, New Ideas in Composition, for three nights—all for free, tickets not required!

Re-discover the classics and be wowed by world premieres

Lincoln Center Presents prioritizes an expansive view of artistic excellence all season long. Choreographer Akram Khan rethinks the colonizer-centric perspective of The Jungle Book, retelling the story of the young girl Mowgli as a refugee child stranded by the cruel realities of climate change. Gospel, funk, soul, and Afrobeat come together in a joyful interpretation of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, The Sound of Music, this time viewed through a utopian, afrofuturistic lens. Aficionados of classical arts won't want to miss Les Arts Florissants' spectacular production of Henry Purcell's The Fairy Queen and Philip Glass's The Complete Piano Etudes—both running this November with a Choose-What-You-Pay ticketing model.

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.

Discover the Legacies of San Juan Hill

Join us for conversations this October and November that further explore the cultural legacy and creative life of the historic Manhattan neighborhood.
