View All Metropolitan Opera House Tickets

One of the world’s leading opera companies, the classic New York City venue, since its opening in 1883 has established a reputation for high quality performances. Originally built on Broadway and 39th Street, it always lacked adequate stage facilities until it moved to the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. This new Metropolitan Opera House opened, at the Lincoln Center in Sep 1966, with the finest technical facilities of its time.

Having a reputation for excellent performances, the Metropolitan Opera house always engaged the world’s most talented artists of the times. From Anton Seidl in the 1880s and 1890s to Arturo Toscanini who made his debut in 1908, the Metropolitan had always been shaped by great conductors. Today, the venue has a large repertory of works, and the wherewithal to make performances by many of the world’s most renowned artists available to the public.


With such a reputation, all performances at the Opera House would always be heavily sold out. Tickets are normally available from its box office, and you may have to spend hours in line for the Metropolitan Opera House tickets for the event of your liking.

For certain select performances, students’ discount tickets are available ‘for full time high school and university students, age 29 or under.’ Students’ tickets are available on production of ID, as well as age proof. Weekday performance would cost $25 per ticket and $35 for Friday and Saturday performances.

Though the prices may vary depending on the event, Standing Room Only (SRO) tickets – one to a person – is available at $20 for Orchestra and $15 for Family Circle. These are available from the Box Office, and only for cash.

Many of our regular customers, unable to spend hours in the box office line, use our services to procure Metropolitan Opera House tickets for the performances they do not wish to miss out. We guarantee excellent services and ensure you receive your tickets well in time for the performances.

You, of course, have to pay a little more than the face value of the ticket. This extra payment helps defray the costs we incur in ensuring that you receive your tickets for your favorite performances.

The Met

Over the years, the Opera House had been responsible for American premieres of such renowned works as Wagner’s Ring cycle and Puccini’s Turandot, Puccini’s La Fanciulla del West, Corigliano’s The Ghosts of Versailles, Harbison’s The Great Gatsby, and Picker’s An American Tragedy, among many others. A single season sees more than 800,000 people pass through its portals for the excellent performances.

The venue, with some noted exceptions, has a policy of performing most works in their original language. In 1995, the Metropolitan Opera House custom designed a unique system of simultaneous translation – Met Titles.

Met Titles are seen on the back of every seat, on stanchions, and at all Standing Room locations. Each screen is individually controlled by the viewer and can be turned off if not required.

We can always arrange Metropolitan Opera House tickets at a short notice.
