Lincoln Center Festival began with the idea of expanding the possibilities presented at Lincoln Center and bringing to audiences something that they could not see elsewhere. This is a challenging goal in a city as culturally rich as New York, and the result has been an eclectic mix of artists and productions representing over 50 countries as of Festival 2013. Central to the Festival has been an effort to look outside the Western European canon, to broaden notions of classicism by presenting classical works from other parts of the world. And, of course, the theaters of Lincoln Center have been our main stages, although on occasion we have presented performances elsewhere, notably at the Gerald Lynch Theater at John Jay College and at the Park Avenue Armory.
Dates: July 6 - 28
