Relaxed Performances 

This season, we’re pleased to offer a series of relaxed performances adapted for neurodiverse audiences, including children with autism or other disabilities. At these performances, there are no restrictions around noise or movement, audience members are welcome to leave and re-enter the theater, and adjustments are made to these productions to reduce sensory stimuli. Ages listed are based on developmental age ranges recommended by our programming experts. Parents are welcome to use their discretion in determining which shows are best for their children.

Passport to the Arts: A Program for Children with Disabilities and their Families

In addition to relaxed performances featured in the LC Kids season, Lincoln Center's Passport to the Arts program provides a welcoming, accessible, and affordable introduction to the performing arts for children, teens, and adults with disabilites and their families. We are thrilled to offer performances, workshops, and tours with a variety of organizations across Lincoln Center this fall, including the New York City Ballet, the Metropolitan Opera, the New York Philharmonic, the Big Apple Circus, and more, all at no cost.
