    Stunning opera house with gorgeous red carpets and incredible lighting. We saw the American Ballet Theatre perform. Seats were great- we were on the left, floor. Orchestra was fantastic and the sound was perfect. Water stations available. We were required to wear our mask during the show.

    Very grand opera house. It is pretty big! We were able to get last minute tickets from the box office around 20 minutes before the start time which was great. They were helpful in choosing the right price band. There is a bar / restaurant with a terrace, however this can get pretty crowded during the interval. Overall really nice!

    Excellent acoustics, luxurious seating, at least in the orchestra, and even little translation screens at every seat. It's as luxurious as u might expect. But beware they r checking your vaccination status at the door, and a mask is required at all times.

    I have missed just one Opera since reopen after quarantine. The scenographer always amazes me, the details, the best use of space and lights... Opera singers are really actors/actresses, some voices have caused me goosebumps... Finally, go minutes before it starts so you get better price.

    My very first Opera. This is a MUST experience! The grandeur of being in Lincoln Center entering the Metropolitan Opera House going through the hall to your seat and just taken in the magnificent opera theater is breath taken. This is not like any place I have ever seen. I was seated in the Grand Tier on the mid left third row and had an excellent view of the stage. In the first ten rows are no seats this area has the complete full live Orchestra. We went to see Porgy and Bess (in English) I loved the show. There are at least 75+ actors on stage. I was amazed. The scenes change throughout the show. At first I couldn't really understand the vocals then I realized there is a subtitles monitor in front of every seat that is in different languages. Once I began using this I was able to understand and then be blown away completely into this amazing opera. I definitely will return again. Also my son who took me to see the show loved it as well. If you like Broadway Musicals then you will love Metropolitan Opera House.
