Best Classically Based (Though They Might program Anything) Festival - 2001
Lincoln Center Festival
In the past season alone, the LINCOLN CENTER FESTIVAL debuted Luci Mie Traditrici, a collaboration between Italian composer Salvatore Sciarrino and choreographer Trisha Brown; Edda: Viking Tales of Lust, Revenge, and Family by Benjamin Bagby and Ping Chong; and White Raven, the new opera by Philip Philip Philip Philip (do I need to have the laser on my CD player realigned?) Glass. But they make room for far-flung traditions, as well: gospel fests, swing and Latin music, Chinese opera, and more.
