Great exhibits. A priceless art collection - in particular the Impressionist section. Allow plenty of time because the museum is massive - other notable sections for me are the Arms and Armour and the Egyptian sections.

it is not as expensive as you think, you can get partial-view seats in a box, for about $25 and still wonderful, you get to look down on the orchestra and the people in $400 seats. there is more leg room, and room to put your coats. a weekday evening is easier to get tickets at the last minute, but...

We always go to at least one opera when we're in New York. We love the "house," the productions, singers and orchestra are always fabulous.

The Metropolitan Opera Company is planning to air a performance of "The Death of Klinghoffer" this October. This horrible anti-Semitic rendition actually justifies the terrorism that led to the murder of a 69 year old American Jewish man pushed off the deck into the sea. The lead character says: "Whenever poor men are gathered, they can find Jews getting fat.... More

I have been to operas in different cities throughout the world and have to say The Met is one of the best! You cannot beat the opera company in their performances. If you have a chance to go to a performance by all means go! You will completely delighted.

Nobody should miss an opportunity to hear and see the most magnificent opera company in the world at work. The splendour on the stage is only outdone I suspect by the splendour behind the curtains. Verdi, Mozart, Strauss and the other composers would all be bowled over by their productions.

The Metropolitan Opera continues to lure us to New York every year. The setting within Lincoln Center is beautiful and the venue endures, several decades after it's opening. For seating, the Family Circle and other areas of the upper balconies have always served us well. Each seat in the house had a translation bar at the rear of the chair... More
