New and Improved

Premieres may be scattered throughout the year, but there’s no time like the Lincoln Center Festival to catch refreshing guest ensembles playing their newest work.

  1. 1. So Percussion

    July 20 and 21 at the Allen Room

  2. 2. “Second Visit to the Empress”

    July 24, 28, and 29 at the New York State Theater

    Talented choreographer Shen Wei takes a first stab at opera, revitalizing a work first performed 200 years ago in a Beijing palace.

  3. 3. Ballet National de Marseille

    July 25 through 27 at the New York State Theater

    In this rare meeting of a great ballet company and a singular set designer, the architect Zaha Hadid provides sculptural stage pieces for an intriguing multimedia work.
