One of the world's leading performing arts centres, Lincoln Center is a complex of several state-of-the-art theatres. The entire complex was built in the early 1960s and is home to about 12 fine organisations, including the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Opera, the New York Philharmonic, and the New York City Ballet, to name a few. Each of these organisations conducts performing arts at the theatres within the complex, including the largest and most prestigious three: the Metropolitan Opera House, the Philharmonic Hall (now called Avery Fisher), and the New York State Theater (now called Dave Koch). Countless famous artists, such as Pavarotti and Maria Callas, have performed here. For lovers of opera, classical music and ballet, the Lincoln Center is heaven.
