Experience a World of Creativity at Lincoln Center Festival
July 21 2017 | Events
Lincoln Center is at the heart of New York City’s creative spirit. Just a few blocks from Hotel Belleclaire or Washington Jefferson Hotel, this nearly seven-acre complex of buildings is home to the New York Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera, and the New York City Ballet.
What began as an urban renewal project in 1955 is today a vibrant and timeless hub of inspiration and imagination.
Lincoln Center Festival
Every summer Lincoln Center Festival turns up the creative intensity with weeks of fresh and innovative offerings — plays, dance performances, operas, and visual art. This offers you an opportunity to see a multitude of acclaimed international acts while only having to travel to one city and one hotel. And this means if you stay at any one of our hotels, you’re only minutes away from the best music, dance, theater, and opera from all over the world.
The festival begins on July 10 and goes through July 30.
Special Offer: Save 15%
Lincoln Center has a special offer this year. When you add any three performances to your cart, you’ll get a 15% discount automatically. Some exclusions apply, but this is a great way to, perhaps, mix some more familiar music, theatre, or art experiences with one or two excursions that are a bit more experimental and new.
What you can expect this year
The Lincoln Center Festival always offers thoughtful, immersive — and sometimes controversial — performances. This year looks to be no different. The New York Times has a full section dedicated to festival reviews to help you get your bearings. For theatre, this year has a few shows with a Middle Eastern theme, including Yitzhak Rabin: Chronicle of an Assassination, To the End of the Land, and While I Was Waiting. For music, centerpieces include Morton Subotnick, Polish musician and composer Maria Pomianowska, and The Bohemian Trio, a group that combines piano, cello, and saxophone to bring the diverse sounds and rhythms of Cuba and the Americas to life. And don’t forget the dance performances and circus arts!
