    At the last minute we got our tickets for the Opera (rear left) not bad of a seating, but our front screen never worked, so I couldn’t enjoy the show.

    Definitely make time (1.5-2 hours) to take a backstage tour. If you want to see more sights (but no people), go on Sunday, when the house is dark (i.e. no performances). Read more

    FANTASTIC PLACE TO HEAR BEAUTIFUL SOUNDS! The drinks and food are very over priced. Don't get the smoked salmon sandwich. The desserts are a safer more delicious option.

    Get online and get a box. views are better farther from the stage and there's room to stretch your legs.

    If you're taller, really consider getting an aisle seat. Leg room is at a premium.

    Make sure to get there early! If you're not in the auditorium before the curtain goes up, they won't let you in until intermission!

    Watching the Joffrey Ballet perform here is always a treat, but when the Reagans came on March 15, 1981, it was extra special- their son Ron was one of the dancers performing that night.

    Ironically the best sound is at the top - the cheapest seats and standing room.

    The only good, reasonably priced food in the area is at the Lincoln Center Duane Reade. Grab a few beers, some cookies and a friend, and dine in the square.

    The center of the fifth step from the street provides the best POV for shooting the Met and the fountain in front.

    World-class performances aside, the Met boasts NYC's must stunning chandeliers. The 2009 restoration of the lobby's starbursts was underwritten by Swarovski -- so you know they're gonna sparkle. Read more

    Always been disappointed by Operas I've seen here. What is supposed to be world-class ends up looking stale and dated. With the exception of the production of The Magic Flute, you can skip this place.

    A new Ring cycle will kick off the 2010 season on September 27; the full cycle will be complete by 2012, anticipating the Wagner bicentennial the following year.

    Rush tickets are standing room seats for $20. After an act or two, the people in the orchestra usually give away their tickets/seats. Its a deal.
