A picture of the Metropolitan Opera lobby taken inside from the balcony tier level.
Here is a picture I took of the last opera we saw in December; Sergei Prokofiev's "War and Peace". I think it had the most performers on stage of any opera we've ever seen. I had to sneak the camera out of my bag to take the picture ......shhhhh.......because the Met does not allow photography during a performance. I did wait until the last few seconds of the ending aria to take it.
There is such beauty and emotion in every opera, and the music and pagentry of the productions at the Met are among the best in the world. If you visit NYC during opera season I hope you will consider a visit to Lincoln Center and enjoy one! You will truly be seeing a masterpiece.
