  • Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts
    Lincoln Center always programs a diverse lineup of cultural offerings, and this winter is no different. The New York City Ballet prefaces its winter session with a monthlong run of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker—a holiday favorite celebrating its 60th anniversary. The season proper kicks off in late January with an all-Balanchine evening, consisting of Serenade, Agon and Symphony in C. The remainder of the six-week season includes more Balanchine, along with several performances of Romeo & Juliet. The Metropolitan Opera, meanwhile, is set to showcase productions like Giuseppe Verdi's Aida and La Traviata, Engelbert Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel, Franz Lehár's The Merry Widow and Georges Bizet's Carmen. Also worth checking out: a packed lineup in the Great Performers series, a new season of American Songbook featuring the likes of Talib Kweli and Shovels & Rope, and independent movies at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
