New York City’s famous Metropolitan Opera is an excellent destination for an evening of old glamour! Click HERE to see the calendar of operas. There are many ways to purchase tickets at the Met Opera.

One of my favorites is the Metropolitan Opera Rush Tickets Program. $25 Rush Tickets are offered daily online on the Met website. The tickets, in prime seating locations, are available on a first-come, first-served basis for all performances, excepting the New Year’s Eve gala. Rush Tickets are no longer available at the Box Office or over the phone – they are only available online. For example go online today to see Cendrillon in orchestra seats for less than $30 in total. It is an incredible opportunity since these seats are usually priced between $100 – $400!

Besides the rush program, the Met Opera Students program offers full-time undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to purchase student tickets to select performances at a special student rate. Met Opera Student tickets are available online, by phone and at the Box Office. Register for Met Opera Students by completing the online form and submitting a copy of your valid, full-time student ID. You can use your Berkeley College or Pace University student ID as proof.
