Lincoln Center recently teamed with Bridge Multimedia to offer the first-ever Live From Lincoln Center program with audio description. This momentous event featured the New York Philharmonic’s acclaimed production of Sweeney Todd.

Audio description is supplementary audio content that provides an explanation of the visual information that a person with a visual impairment or learning difference may need in order to understand, appreciate, or enjoy a program, event, exhibit, or presentation.
