The Metropolitan Opera
From its opening in 1883, the Metropolitan Opera has been one of the world's leading opera companies. Today, the Met's preeminent position rests on the elements that established its reputation: high quality performances with many of the world's most renowned artists, a superior company of choral and orchestral musicians, a large repertory of works, and the resources to make performances available to the public.
Each season, the Met stages more than two hundred performances of opera in New York City. More than 800,000 people attend the performances in the opera house during the season. Millions more, throughout the world, experience the Met on television, on tours, and through cinemacasts, radio, and recordings.
