Captain America once said, "'Twas music that soothed the savage beast." Although he was talking about his short-lived nemesis Dr. Angry Parakeet, it's just as true for animals of the human persuasion. Soothe savage insides with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one ticket to Tully Scope Festival at Lincoln Center (a $75 value). This Groupon is valid only for one of the 13 performances noted in the sidebar.
The largest performing arts center in the world, Lincoln Center presents more than 400 performances of music, opera, and dance every year from the 16-acre Lincoln Center campus on the Upper West Side. With a ticket to the Tully Scope Festival, you’ll get your pick of 13 performances of world-class compositions. Tyondai Braxton’s experimental style presents a brain-bending blend of sweeping symphonics, crashing guitars, and heady compositions that defy categorization. The Western world’s first percussion ensemble, Les Percussions de Strasbourg will disperse themselves on stages throughout the darkened hall, surrounding the audience in their mallet-armed embrace. Every performance features a post-performance lounge where you can sip a complimentary cocktail and debate acceptable spellings of rutabaga. With today's Groupon in tow, you also earn a secret code good for purchasing additional performance tickets at a discounted $20.
The newly renovated Alice Tully Hall presents a majestic marvel of modern architecture. Architects of Diller Scofidio + Renfro have reinvented the old building anatomy with an impressive steel infrastructure. Inside the curvaceous auditorium, you’ll enjoy acoustics and direct sight lines to the stage, ensuring nothing comes between the performers and your hypnotizing pocket watch.
