“One of the world benchnarks in Art”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

A wonderful place. Every Opera I have seen in this wonderful place for the last thirty years was impeccably prepared, and, as you enter the building, the huge Chagall paintings are a perfect invitaion to the most spectacular dreams in your life. Reservation service is perfect. Unfortunately my last staying in NYC was disturbed by Sandy, the october 2012 storm that took away many lives and caused so many troubles to the big apple. My Opera, Turandot, was cancelled. But the Met gave me full refund. What a nice Company. Not to miss. A unique experience. Translation for the Opera masterpieces for each seat, wonderful decor, wonderful stage.
Go, you will never regret!

“"Extra! Extra ! Come See All About it The Met In New York City"”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

If you are a "Opera Lover" you are in for a beautiful performance by the Met performers. The architecture is awesome. It looks the grandeur of the Palace of Versailles in France It is breathtaking. The performances are excellent. Some songs are song in Italian, French, German, and few in English. I saw Madame Butterfly, La Traviata, The Mikado, Carmen, Aida,Otello,Faust,Anna Boleyn andThe Barber of Seville.Now the MET members can watch via HD cable the show. It is broadcasted also on the radio. It is the longest -running classical music series in the USA radio history that began in 1931 to present to generations of appreciative listeners.It broadcasts on Saturdays as the Met Matinee Radio.If you travel to New York City spoil yourself and attend a performance. You must buy tickets months in advance because they sell out very fast.They have wonderful gift shop. On Gala Premiere night you can purchase tickets to have champagne dinner with the"Stars". You will truly love this place. Maybe you may become a opera lover after seeing this exquisite place.

“Figaro Figaro Figaroooooo”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Wow what a room! It's worth it to spend a little more money for better seats. We saw Nozze di FIgaro but any performance I am sure would be fantastic in that room. You can wait and purchase tickets just before the show downstairs if you are not sure what your plans will be. Nice champagne reception at intermission. No need to get completely dressed to the nines but you can never be over dressed at this spot.

“not seating friendly”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Saw an opera. The English language sub titles were displayed on the back of the seat in front of me. Not a good spot. Should be above the stage like in other place. Too big & empty for opera. Prefer the other opera hall at Lincoln Centre.
