Worried about weather?

If the weather is not bright and crystal clear, just check our homepage before heading out. We keep it up-to-date with the latest information about the evening's performance. For an up-to-the-minute forecast, visit weather.com in Central Park or Battery Park.

What should I bring with me to the performance?

Shows are performed in the early evening, so there are some important things to bring along. Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and carry only what you will need for the evening. If you are sensitive to insect bites we also recommend bringing bug repellent. As we do not provide seating, you are welcome to bring folding chairs--but remember, as our productions moves quite frequently (every 10 to 15 minutes), a picnic blanket may be a more convenient option.

For our patrons with physical disabilities

Every show and each venue poses its own unique challenges. Information about our venues can be accessed at the venue websites above. We are committed to making your experience as enjoyable as possible. At your request, we are happy to assign a staff member to help you in anyway. For further questions or more information feel free to contact us before a performance at info@newyorkclassical.org or call 212-662-0760. Please note: we need 24 hours to arrange a staff member for your convenience.
