Why Our NYC Personal Injury Lawyers Love The Lincoln Center For The Performing Arts

The Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is one of the most important cultural facilities in the world. This 16.3-acre building complex in Lincoln Square is home to some of the globe’s most renowned performing arts organizations, including the New York Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Ballet, and the New York City Opera. If you’re looking to enjoy some high culture, there are very few facilities that can hold a candle to the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Our New York City personal injury lawyers love visiting here to watch high-end theater, ballet, and musical performances. Some upcoming highlights here include:

New York Philharmonic

The New York Philharmonic is one of the oldest musical institutions in the country and the oldest of the “Big Five” orchestras in the states. They host a variety of events throughout the year, including orchestra performances, ensembles, soloists, concerts in the park, festivals, and more. Some events we’re looking forward to during the current season include:

  • Music of Conscience – This three-week program is based on themes like historical events, political unrest, and turmoil in society. Notable features include a dedication by John Corigliano to the loved ones he lost during the 1980s AIDS epidemic and the world premiere of Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang’s piece prisoner of the state, which is a contemporary update to Beethoven’s Fidelio, focusing on the fall of a tyrant.
  • The Art of Andriessen – This program focuses on the music of Louis Andriessen, who has amassed a diverse body of work. This program will also debut the world premier of his pieces Agamemnon and TAO.
  • The Art of the Score – Famous music scores are played live by the New York Philharmonic while you watch the films on a big screen overtop of the orchestra. This year, the films are There Will Be Blood and 2001: A Space Odyssey.
