  1. Carnegie Hall

    This historic concert hall opened in 1891 with Tchaikovsky making his U.S. debut on the podium. A campaign led by violinist Isaac Stern saved the hall from demolition after Lincoln Center was completed in 1969, and it entered its second century with old-world style intact after an extensive, lavish renovation .

  2. Metropolitan Opera House

    Lincoln Center’s most elegant performance venue shows off glorious oversize murals by Marc Chagall inside great arched windows. The interior boasts exquisite starburst chandeliers that are raised to the ceiling before each performance. The theater presents the American Ballet Theater and many traveling groups, as well as its famous opera company .

  3. Avery Fisher Hall

    Thanks to the generosity of benefactor Avery Fisher, the hall is now, after early acoustics problems, worthy of the New York Philharmonic, the oldest symphony orchestra in the U.S. A bust by Rodin of composer and former Philharmonic Music Director Gustav Mahler, on the west side of the building, is one of the best pieces of public sculpture in Lincoln Center.

  4. New York State Theater

    The stage was built in 1964 to the specification of legendary choreographer George Balanchine, the founder of the New York City Ballet company, which dances here in winter and spring. The New York City Opera Company is also based here, presenting laudable productions that are far more affordable than the neighboring Metropolitan .

  5. Alice Tully Hall

    Built for the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center originally, the hall was renovated inside and out in 2009. Besides chamber and vocal concerts, it is used for shows by the Julliard School students and faculty, many of which are free to the public.

  6. City Center Theater

    The ornate, Moorish-style building with a dome of Spanish tiles was opened in 1923 as a Shriner’s Temple. Saved from developers by Mayor LaGuardia, it survived after losing its companies to Lincoln Center, and has become a major venue for touring dance companies.

  7. Joyce Theater

    A 1941 Art Deco movie theater was converted (in 1982) to become an intimate home for dance. Small and medium-sized modern dance companies from around the world present an exciting range of work that can’t be seen elsewhere in Manhattan. Question-and-answer sessions with the artists follow some Wednesday night performances.
