Lincoln Center hosts hundreds of music, opera, theatre and dance productions throughout the year. The Metropolitan Opera House, Avery Fisher Hall, and the New York City Ballet attract the finest musicians and performers from around the world; on any given night you can watch Placido Domingo in a production of Samson and Delilah, or listen to Itzhak Perlman play Bruch's Violin Concerto with the New York Philharmonic. Summer festivals such as Mostly Mozart are highly popular, as well as outdoor events highlighting jazz, blues and international folk music. Symphonic orchestras, small chamber groups, world-reknowned artists, talented Juilliard students, choirs, ballet troupes, modern dance companies... Lincoln Center offers spectacular productions and concerts for an assortment of tastes.
In August they have a festival called Lincoln Center out of doors. Many free performances are held here representing different cultures. If it is a sit down performance get there at least 30 minutes before the show because they fill up fast. Other times they just have where you can just dance with other people. For example this year they had a swing marathon festival. Where people just dance to swing or jitterbug. Its ok if you do not have a partner to go with you just stick around for 5 minutes and someone will ask you to dance. Its ok if you do not know to how to dance some people are willing to teach you. Its all FREEE!
Now at other times of the year there are special performances that you have to pay for. These are held inside of the hall.
