Merry Widow was delightful. Music seemed a bit loud making it a little hard to hear the words being sung. We started with dinner at the Grand Tier Restaurant. Food was delicious, beautifully presented, and not rushed. $16 for a glass of wine steep.

Most recently attended The Merry Widow at the Met. Magnificent facility: not a bad seat in the hall. The Met has a lovely restaurant, kiosks serve champagne pre-show and during intermission. People watching almost as good as the performances. Orchestras are sheer perfections. If visiting NYC for performing arts this spot is a must.

In addition to the wonderful evening concerts that are held at Lincoln Center, there are rehearsals that you can buy a ticket for quite easily and attend regularly. It is a great little NY secret. The Metropolitan Opera house also has this wonderful secret, I believe. In addition to the opera and concert hall, there is the ballet and theater.... More

Everybody have to watch Opera once! Or you love it or you hate it! I had a marvelous experience watching: "The Happy Widow " and I have to say that I loved it. My first impression was fantastic, but I felt a little uncomfortable because the space between theseats is very narrow. Over time the average height os the population... More
