The opera is for me one of the greatest form of entertainment. A combination if music and art. The Metropolitan Opera offers the best in this regard. Every show provides a memorable experience.

Cosi Fan Tutte at the Met March 2018 Mozart's music is gloriously performed by the Met's lead singers and ensemble. The story is a twisted spoof on the foibles of love and passion in a burlesque production set in 1950s Coney Island. A circus theme...More

There is no dress rehearsal for Cosi fan tutte on Thursday morning 3/15/18. You need to have a ticket for any dress rehearsal. No admission without a ticket. Dress rehearsal tickets are given out to season subscribers.
