The Metropolitan Opera does not have a strict dress code, but the company recommends professional yet comfortable clothing. Dressing up is historically the norm, especially at gala performances or opening-night premieres. Cocktail attire or formalwear are commonplace, though more casual attire is also permitted. Matinee performances tend to be slightly less formal, with business casual as the norm.
