Metropolitan Opera Summer HD Festival
August 23–September 1
Opera's biggest stars get their close-ups on the big screen during the Met's annual HD Festival. Held outdoors in Lincoln Center Plaza, the free festival brings back 10 productions from the Met's Live in HD simulcast series. Thousands of seats are set up in the plaza, but they do fill up, so it's worthwhile to grab a good one well before the 8pm start time.
