Lincoln Center’s Artistic Leader to Leave After Three Decades

By Zachary Woolfe

Jane Moss, who has guided Lincoln Center’s artistic programming for nearly 30 years, will step down in August, she announced on Friday. Ms. Moss, 67, said in an interview that the coronavirus pandemic presented the opportunity to make a decision she had been considering even before the outbreak, which has wiped out the cultural calendar for months and threatens to curtail the center’s budget and ambitions for years to come. “What this pause created was the space,” she said. “And now is the obvious time.” The center, America’s largest performing arts complex, is best known for its constituent organizations, like the Metropolitan Opera and New York City Ballet.
