I used to tell anyone who would listen that I worshipped at the church of Lincoln Center. My spiritual home is in the arts, and my greatest spiritual fulfillment comes in a theater with live music, live ballet, live dance, live drama, live comedy, any live performance.
But now the theaters, opera houses, concert halls, and performing arts venues are closed, and I feel such overwhelming sadness when I walk around Lincoln Center or pass Carnegie Hall or walk down Broadway to Times Square.
Lincoln Center is taking this time of canceled performances to work on concert hall and theater renovations. And while it used to be bustling at Christmastime with operas and the Nutcracker and holiday concerts, the plaza is quiet now. There was no big tree this year in front of the campus. There were no holiday concerts in the area by the Philharmonic musicians or the Met chorus.
So Lincoln Center has quietly lighted up the plaza and fountain and pool in front of the great halls and offered the area as a place to renew and reflect.
Bittersweet thoughts emerged while gazing at the reflections, but also great hope that these theaters will reopen and performances resume again to feed my soul.
