About Met Opera

v
The Metropolitan Opera, NYC

“The Met Opera, formally referred to as The Metropolitan Opera stands as an opera company, on a scale. Situated within Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, in New York City on the side of Manhattan it offers an array of captivating opera performances that you wouldn’t want to overlook in the upcoming season.”

History:

The Metropolitan Opera was established in 1880 by a group of individuals aiming to create a venue, for opera in New York City. Their initial opera house was constructed on Broadway and 39th Street debuting on October 22 1883 with a presentation of Charles Gounods “Faust.”

During the century under the guidance of Giulio Gatti Casazza the Met started building its reputation as a prominent stage for renowned international performers. It was during Gatti Casazzas leadership that the company aired its radio performance—a rendition of “Hänsel und Gretel” on Christmas Day, in 1931.

The Met moved to its current location at Lincoln Center in 1966. The opera house at Lincoln Center, designed by Wallace Harrison, is notable for its distinctive arch and lobby chandeliers, and it seats approximately 3,800.

Performances and Notable Figures:

The Metropolitan Opera has a collection of performances spanning three centuries showcasing masterpieces, by composers like Mozart, Verdi, and Puccini alongside more contemporary pieces.

Known for its top-notch production standards and unwavering dedication to theatrical excellence the Met has been a haven for opera’s iconic figures over the years.

Esteemed conductors such, as James Levine and Arturo Toscanini as legendary vocalists including Enrico Caruso, Maria Callas, Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo, and Renée Fleming have graced its stage.

Metropolitan Opera House:

The Metropolitan Opera House is renowned as a top-level opera venue. Its auditorium features a horseshoe design with the proscenium arch. The structure encircling the stage. Standing at a 54 feet, in height and width ranking it among the largest worldwide. Moreover the establishment encompasses resources, for costume production.

The Met’s immense chandelier, a gift from the Austrian government, is another iconic feature. The chandelier, along with the lobby’s starburst fixtures, was designed by Hans Harald Rath of the Viennese firm Lobmeyr and is meant to evoke a celestial theme, adding to the dramatic effect.

Best Seats at the Metropolitan Opera House

Choosing the best seats at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City largely depends on personal preferences relating to acoustics, visibility, and cost. Here’s a general breakdown of seating areas and what to expect:


  1. Orchestra:
    • Pros:
      • Closer to the stage for a more intimate experience.
      • Generally good acoustics.
    • Cons:
      • Cost is higher due to demand.
      • Depending on how far forward you sit, the angle might require looking up for extended periods, which could be uncomfortable.
      • Seats very close to the stage might mean you miss out on seeing the full breadth of the production.
  2. Parterre Boxes:
    • Pros:
      • Elevated slightly above the orchestra level, offering a good view of the stage.
      • Private and luxurious feel due to being in a box.
    • Cons:
      • Can be pricey.
      • Might feel slightly removed from the action compared to the orchestra.
  3. Grand Tier:
    • Pros:
      • An elevated view allows you to see the entire stage and any projections or supertitles.
      • Acoustically considered one of the best spots in the house.
    • Cons:
      • Higher price point.
  4. Dress Circle:
    • Pros:
      • Still a relatively good view of the entire stage.
      • More affordable than the Grand Tier.
    • Cons:
      • Slightly less optimal acoustics compared to Grand Tier.
  5. Balcony:
    • Pros:
      • Generally more affordable.
      • An elevated view allows you to see the entire stage.
    • Cons:
      • Distance might make it harder to see facial expressions.
      • Acoustics might not be as pristine.
  6. Family Circle:
    • Pros:
      • Most affordable seating option.
    • Cons:
      • Furthest from the stage.
      • Acoustics are still good, but not as crisp as closer seats.

Tips:

  • If you’re interested in seeing the orchestra pit, the front orchestra seats offer a good view.
  • If you want the best acoustical experience, many opera-goers swear by the center sections of the Grand Tier or Dress Circle.
  • If you’re looking to save money, consider Family Circle or the rear sections of the Balcony.
  • Always check the Met’s seating chart and, if possible, reviews or opinions from other patrons to get a sense of the best seat for your specific needs and budget.

Remember, individual experiences can vary based on the particular production, individual hearing, and personal preferences. It might be worth trying seats in different sections over multiple visits to determine your favorite spot.
