By the sheer size of its facilities and the scope of its performances—approximately 400 events every year—this cultural complex, which opened in the mid-1960s and is in the midst of a massive, multiyear reconstruction project, claims the crown as the city's preeminent center for the performing arts. The Metropolitan Opera is based at, naturally, the Metropolitan Opera House, the New York City Ballet at the New York State Theater, the New York Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall. Individual events and festivals are scattered throughout these and other performance halls, including the newest addition, Jazz at Lincoln Center, located several blocks south in the Time Warner complex. Summer sees special outdoor events, including Midsummer Night Swing, when the public boogies to live bands on the plaza, and Lincoln Center Out of Doors, a festival of free open-air performances.
