Gala night at the Met

thumbnail_FullSizeRender (9) - CopyWhy ?…because Iconic  !  One of the best Opera house in the world and an excuse to dress up ! Fabulous acoustic too…

 

If you’re in NY you’ll want to see a show on Broadway but in comparison the Met is much better value, if you manage to get a ticket that is !… but with a bit of planning, it could be possible and it is definitely well worth a visit and experience first hand this atmosphere so special, the enthusiasm from the audience and a live 50 pieces + symphonic orchestra. Even if you do not like classical music this can resonate with you because the maestria of the artists either vocally in case of Opera or physically in case of Ballet is breathtaking.

And there is the setting, majestuous grand staircase, sparkling chandeliers and Chagall paintings (over your head in the Grand Tier restaurant)…

I can recommend the Grand Tier restaurant, reduced menu but surprisingly pleasant food and you can come back to your table during the interval to enjoy your dessert and drink some more Champagne !
