Who needs a summer vacation in foreign lands when so many spectacular international events come to Lincoln Center Festival? Since it began in 1996, this one-of-a-kind multi-arts explosion has given us precious glimpses into cultural lives from around the globe. We have seen Islamic religious plays, avant-garde opera, huge resources devoted to Beckett, Pinter and the Royal Shakespeare Company. Modern dance, ballet and experimental hybrids are also well represented, as are musical performances that expand the boundaries of the concert hall. In short, Lincoln Center Festival is the must-attend event for globally minded culture vultures.

This year’s international, multidisciplinary arts fest is focused on cross-cultural and cross-genre collaborations. It begins with Monkey: Journey to the West, an unconventional opera co-conceived by Chinese director Chen Shi-Zheng, and Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett of Gorillaz (July 6–28). John Malkovich helms a French-language production of the steamy Les Liaisons Dangereuses (July 9–14). Charlie Chaplin’s daughter and granddaughter, Victoria Thierrée Chaplin and Aurélia Thierrée, offer language-free acrobatics in Murmurs (July 24–28). And Sinéad O’Connor switches gears from Irish rock to American soul, taking on Sam Cooke and the like in the Gospel Sessions (July 26, 27).
