Home to the New York City Ballet, the Philharmonic and the Metropolitan Opera, Lincoln Center is the world's most famous performing art space. This fascinating tour takes you behind the scenes of it all—and you may even be privy to a live rehearsal.

The Lincoln Center is the world’s leading performing arts center, comprising an incredible twelve resident organizations including The Julliard School, The Metropolitan Opera, and the New York Philharmonic. These 12 establishments constitute a total of 26 venues located on 16 acres in New York City’s Upper West Side. Arguably, no other establishment in the world has bred and hosted so many talented world-class performers as the Lincoln Center. Boasting five million visitors each year, a visit to the Lincoln Center is a must for anyone planning to visit New York City. Particularly special is the tour of its namesake venue, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

The Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts offers guided tours that depart several times each day for English speakers. Catering to a truly international audience, there are also guided tours available in Japanese, German, Spanish, Italian, and French.

The tour, which begins at the gorgeous David Rubenstein Atrium on Broadway between 62nd and 63rd Streets, takes visitors through the infamous Metropolitan Opera House, the David Geffen Hall, the David H. Koch Theater, the Vivian Beaumont Theater, and the Alice Tully Hall. Visitors are given unique access to the history and the beauty of the buildings, as well as inside information about the stars that have performed on the stages of The Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Perhaps the most appealing aspect of taking a tour through this vibrant hub of musical and theatrical activity is that you are able to feel the pulse of the center, with some visitors having the opportunity to see a rehearsal in action, or even meet a star!

The Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is truly larger than life; each of its individual institutions world-famous in its own rite and appealing to a wide variety of music and performance lovers. For example, many will recognize Jazz at Lincoln Center, where trumpet legend Wynton Marsalis holds a prestigious position as Artistic Director of Jazz. And the mention of the New York City Ballet is sure to have dance fans imagining Mikhail Baryshnikov dancing boldly under the spotlight. No matter what your preference, a visit to the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is a wonderful way to experience firsthand the culture and vivacity of New York’s music and dance scene.
