The Metropolitan Opera, in New York City, is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary - SILVER - this year and boy do they have the season to match it! With an operating budget of $296 million, they will be staging at total of 26 operas, which amounts to 225 performances! (FYI, there are 365 days in a year, get it?)
So there it is, our take on the Met's new 2016-2017 season! I'd love to finish the article with their season trailer, but oddly there isn't one (at least on Youtube). So if you'd like to learn more - or actually buy tickets ASAP, because yes, you can - definitely go check out the Met's website here.
I am passionate about opera. I choose to see the best in the things around me. I make the most out of every situation. I am an enthusiast. I don't pretend to be a critic, and I certainly am no snob. These are my thoughts, highly influenced by too many high note vibrations and good wine.
