The Metropolitan Opera Tours

Affectionately known to many as “The Met,” the Metropolitan Opera of New York is a landmark institution and cultural hub of the city. Since its founding in 1883, its stage has hosted some of the finest artists and voices in the world.

Located at the Lincoln Center for the Arts in the heart of Manhattan, it is the largest classical music organization in North America. Opera season runs from September to May each year, with about 27 different operas performed during that time. The opera’s performing company consists of a large symphony-sized orchestra, a chorus, a children's choir and additional solo singers. There are nearly 4,000 seats in the main auditorium.

Outside of the world-class performances, the building itself is something to see with its dozens of chandeliers, murals by artist Marc Chagall, winding stairways and a multi-level auditorium decorated in white and gold. Tours of the backstage area are held daily alongside daily tours of the Lincoln Center, which include the auditorium and front of the house.

Practical Info

The Metropolitan Opera is located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City, between West 62nd and 65th streets and Columbus and Amsterdam avenues. There is a 24-hour public parking lot beneath the Lincoln Center. Daily tours start at $18.
