The Opera House is my favorite place in town. I go to the opera in the fall and winter. I have a ballet subscription with my friends in the spring. See La Boheme or Turandot as they are both gorgeous. The sight lines are very...More

Yes - the acoustics at the Met are unbelievable. You could stand behind the seats in the Family Circle (highest level) and still hear everything loud and clear as a bell. Needless to say, productions are first rate as well as the talent on stage....More

Such an iconic setting. Well maintained and comfortable. Heed their warning. Arrive early, the lines to enter can be long.

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

There is no dress rehearsal for Cosi fan tutte on Thursday morning 3/15/18. You need to have a ticket for any dress rehearsal. No admission without a ticket. Dress rehearsal tickets are given out to season subscribers.
