Lincoln Center is not holding any indoor performances this year, and some venues like the Metropolitan Opera have canceled concerts until next fall.
But the performing arts center has found a way to offer concerts in a way that feels safer, and bring in a little money. They’re holding a series called “New Stages” with performances at two venues: the sloped lawn that borders 66th Street known as the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Lawn, and the tree-lined section on the other side of the pool called the Barclays Capital Grove.
People can purchase pods to sit and watch the concerts at a reasonable distance from others.
“A pod costs $25 and can accommodate up to two people, yourself and a guest. Pods in Barclays Capital Grove have chairs, while pods on the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Lawn are on the ground—guests are encouraged to bring their own blankets to sit on. All pods are general admission, first come first served, and only two pods may be purchased per transaction. No pods will be sold at the door.”
The next concert is this Friday. See the whole schedule here.
