Upper West Siders are so lucky to live near Lincoln Center. Of course, there is the opera, the ballet and the philharmonic, but Lincoln Center itself is a great free show. There is always something to see in the main plaza or the two plazas on the north and south sides of the opera house.
This morning we saw wonderful sculptures and fabric covered trees in the Hearst Plaza on the north side. They are part of a Thai cultural program going on this month.
We also watched the raising of a huge banner on the front of the opera house advertising the Met’s new modern production of Donizetti’s “Lucia”.
Finally, the main plaza was another show as we watched numerous construction workers building a complex dance stage, which will enable the public to enjoy dancing throughout the summer. The first night is June 1st.
