Get cultured with free outdoor operas at Lincoln Center!

Get cultured with free outdoor operas at Lincoln Center!
Richard Termine

Tonight is the opening night of Metropolitan Opera’s 2015 Summer HD Festival, which features free outdoor movie screenings of operas on the Lincoln Center Plaza! This year’s festival opens with a special presentation of the classic film West Side Story. Use your discretion when picking your visit—We’d certainly recommend this cool lineup for your older kiddos, but we wouldn’t recommend bringing anyone under 10. Some films have adult themes and graphic content. Be sure to browse our list of the best summer activities for kids and best free things to do with kids!
