Experience renowned classic operas or see a contemporary opera from a new composer. In addition to time-honored, familiar classics like La Bohème and Madama Butterfly – the bases for the popular musicals Rent and Miss Saigon, respectively — the Met Opera regularly debuts new works as well. Living playwrights have adapted their works for the opera, and new composers debut entirely original opera works on the stage. Operas are performed in a variety of languages, including English, but subtitles are always available in multiple languages to ensure everyone can enjoy the performance to the fullest.
A night out at the opera makes a great date night or family event, as some operas are even abridged and geared toward children and families.
