Reviewed 25 February 2012

every production is so perfect. opera at its best. amazing location. if you like opera, this is your place. Visit Daniel Boulud's bar across from the Lincoln Center for drinks and appetizers and mingle with super cool NYC crowds :)

“amazing, one of the best theaters in the world”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

I always go to the Met Opera when in NY, but since I go often to other theaters I never get tired of their organization and precision in all types of performances!! The only thing is the poor inventory of ballet books compared to the Royal Opera House, and the restaurante also could improve a little... But anyway a wonderful theater, one of the best in the world!!
