While many people attend the Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center to hear the music and watch the performances, some patrons enjoy getting a backstage tour, through which they are allowed to see production areas of the opera house.
The Metropolitan Opera Guild Backstage Tours are held during the Met’s season regularly at 3 p.m. on weekdays and 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Sundays, with certain exceptions. To schedule a tour, call 212-769-7028 or visit the website at http://www.metopera.org. Tickets are $25 each for the general public, $23 for guild members, and $20 for students and groups of 10 or larger.
Additionally, members of the Patron Program gain exclusive access to a 90-minute VIP tour of the opera house every day of the week: weekdays at 2:30 p.m., Saturdays at 10 a.m., and Sundays at 12:15 p.m.
