The annual Lincoln Center Festival kicks off today.
The month-long cultural event brings artists from around the world to the UWS for performances ranging across genres such as theater, dance, music, and opera.
Full details and a calendar of events are available at LincolnCenterFestival.org.
The Post has a decent overview of the festival, including this lede:
Dancers from Paris, opera singers from China, Chekhov from Down Under — and star turns by Cate Blanchett, Alan Cumming and Mikhail Baryshnikov.
This year’s Lincoln Center Festival will deliver all that and more. It’s the United Nations of the art world, minus the squabbling.
Some of the highlights of this year’s festival include Alan Cumming in Macbeth and Cate Blanchett Uncle Vanya. There’s also a 70th birthday tribute to R&B legend Curtis Mayfield that should have some fantastic music.
Nearly 70 performances of various productions will take place over the next 30 days — you can see the full calendar here.
