Passport to the Arts

Designed for children, teens and adults with disabilities and their families, Passport to the Arts provides a welcoming, accessible, and cost-free introduction to the performing arts at Lincoln Center.

Families are invited to attend performances, interactive workshops, and virtual events with Lincoln Center, New York City Ballet, the Metropolitan Opera, the New York Philharmonic, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Chamber Music Society, and more!

Explore the season offerings to choose the programs that are exciting for your family, and be sure to note your top choice when you register – tickets for all programs are limited and we do our best to match every family with at least one program each season.

The spring 2023 season of Passport to the Arts will be announced in late January or early February.
