With September just around the corner, Summer for the City at Lincoln Center is preparing to wrap up for the year. But fans of all that Lincoln Center has to offer don’t need to worry, because they’ve just announced their programming for the Fall/Winter season. If you’re looking to plan ahead for the colder weather, ILTUWS has a preview of what you can expect from this cultural cornerstone for the next few months, beginning on September 7.


This year’s focus is The Contemporary, The Classical, and New Collaborations. It will treat Upper West Siders (and visitors) to a variety of groundbreaking music, dance, art, theater and more, including:

A new production of Henry Purcell’s “The Fairy Queen” by Les Arts Florissants, which will be making its US Premiere on November 2, directed by French-Algerian choreographer and director Mourad Merzouki and featuring dancers from The Juilliard School, at Alice Tully Hall.

The Sound of (Black) Music which will be bringing gospel, funk soul and Afrobeat together in a reimagining of the Rodgers and Hammerstein score by Michael Mwenso and Jono Gasparro in Alice Tully Hall on November 9.

And a two-day symposium with visual artist Kambui Olujimi featuring the world premiere of his film, “North Star” on October 7 and 8.

A number of Lincoln Center festival favorites will also be making their returns including globalFEST, the Unsound Festival and The Festival of Firsts, the last of which will be offering presentations designed specifically for neurodivergent audiences. The Lincoln Center Moments Series will be back as well, this time with events for those with dementia and their caregivers, offered both in person and online.

Money is no object when it comes to taking in the performances this season as most of them are free or choose-what-you-pay.


The David Rubenstein Atrium will also play host to the New York Community Blood Drive on October 2 and December 4 from 1-7 p.m. Make sure to schedule an appointment here if you’re interested in giving blood. The Juilliard School will be performing live throughout the drive and every donation can save three lives.
