The Metropolitan Opera in New York City at Lincoln Square

 

The Metropolitan Opera has just as much history as some of the worlds older opera houses. Built in 1883, by a group of wealthy businessmen who wanted their own opera house, The Metropolitan Opera quickly became one of the worlds leading opera companies. In 1995, The Metropolitan Opera updated their auditorium by adding small LCD screens on the back of each seat, displaying real-time text translations called "Met Titles." The auditorium is one of the largest in the world, seating over 4,000 people (although that includes standing room).
