Enjoy some of the best of The Metropolitan Opera outdoors this summer—for free. During the Met Opera’s Summer Recital Series, delight in performances by sopranos Danielle de Niese and Deanna Breiwick, tenor Dimitri Pittas, pianist Dan Saunders and more as the sun sets and the heat of the day gradually gives way to a cool night under the City's sparkling lights. In late August, enjoy the City’s best opera for free. For the fourth year in a row, the Metropolitan Opera is presenting free HD video screenings of 10 productions that showcase today's biggest opera stars. As long as the sky remains clear, you can grab a seat outdoors at Lincoln Center Plaza and enjoy some of the classics.
