Festival director Nigel Redden noted, "As in our past seasons, the Lincoln Center Festival will be a mix of music, dance, drama, and visual art -- but, by and large, great stories from all over the world have inspired the programming this year. From the vastness of Wagner's epic Ring Cycle to the pithy and exquisite animal fables of Fontaine as enacted by the esteemed Comédie-Française, these tales will be realized anew in fresh visions by some of today's most insightful creative artists."
