Opera's biggest stars get their close-ups on the big screen during the Met's free HD Festival. Held outdoors in Lincoln Center Plaza, the event brings back nearly a dozen productions from the Met's Live in HD simulcast series; there will also be a pre-festival screening of the film Funny Face, with songs by George and Ira Gershwin, on August 23. There are thousands of seats in the plaza—but they do fill up, so grab a good one well before the 8pm start time.
