  • Metropolitan Opera Guild Backstage Tours
    Go backstage at the Metropolitan Opera, one of the world's largest and most respected classical music institutions. During the Met's season (which begins in late September), visitors can take this 75- to 90-minute tour to learn about the history of the organization and its Lincoln Center space—the current Metropolitan Opera House opened in 1966, and the opera company itself dates back to 1880. They also see the intricate work that goes into creating a major stage production: the beautiful backdrops, the elaborate costumes and the rehearsal rooms where the talented artists hone their craft.
