A nice introduction and video here.
Cost: $12.50 Click here to purchase ticket.
Running Time: 3 hours
I will be waiting in the lobby from 6:00-6:15PM to the right of the ticket purchasing area I will be wearing my cowboy hat. After that look for my cowboy hat in the screening room.
Note: These live operas do have intermissions. You also get to see how the Met takes sets apart and puts new ones up between acts. They also interview members of the cast and crew. These breaks create other opportunities (besides intermission) to run to the restroom or take a break from the show.
