The Metropolitan Opera House is part of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts complex located in Manhattan in New York City, NY. It is home to the Metropolitan Opera and American Ballet Theatre‘s Spring season, as well as host to national and international ballet companies. It is one of the most technologically-advanced theatres in the world, allowing for over 200 spectacular productions each year.
★ INTERESTING FACT ★ The Metropolitan Opera House was designed by Wallace Harrison, the same architect credited to Rockefeller Center; it was his forty-third design for the building that all parties finally agreed upon, and construction lasted from 1963-1966. The Met also boasts two murals by Marc Chagall and twenty-one chandeliers donated by the Austrian government.
