No one knows your community better than you. So, whether you want to design a sticker, draw a poster, write a poem, sing a song, or choreograph a dance, Lincoln Center teaching artists will be on hand to help you shape your ideas. Come collaborate on fun and accessible art projects to help reach the people in your lives and share the importance of the census. Lincoln Center, in partnership with Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and the U.S. Census Bureau, wants to ensure that our communities get their fair share, especially people in historically under-counted groups. These include people of color, immigrants, LGBTQIA people, people experiencing homelessness, people with low incomes, renters, single-parent households, people with limited English proficiency, and children under the age of five. Why the Census Matters. The Census, a once-a-decade population count, affects your representation in government, and determines how much funding your community receives. When a person isn’t counted, they lose out on about $2,000 every year for TEN YEARS in direct services like SNAP, WIC, hospitals, schools, transportation, and road maintenance. For ticketing information and general questions, please call (212) 721-6500. All ages, families welcome!

Metropolitan Opera

This season, the Metropolitan Opera is offering more weekend performances than ever before, thanks to the launch of Sunday matinees for the first time in our history. That means it’s now easier than ever to experience the incomparable artistry showcased on the stage of the Met. Sunday matinees have a start time of 3:00pm, except for Tosca on March 29 which starts at 2:00pm. Performances: Cosi fan tutte, Feb. 23; Tosca, Mar. 29 (2:00pm), Apr. 5; Maria Stuarda, Apr. 19, May 3.

Così fan tutte: The exuberant last of Mozart’s legendary collaborations with librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte, this saucy comedy of manners tracks an ill-conceived bet made on women’s fidelity. (Everyone involved proves happily fickle in the end.) The master composer lines his score with delicious confections—stunning arias, frothy orchestrations—and the Met meets these demands with a fun and zany staging that relocates the philandering to 1950s Coney Island.
