    Now - March 18, visitors can see Roméo et Juliette; the timeless story of star-crossed lovers, with vivid 18th-century sets and stunning costumes at the Metropolitan Opera House.

    Always been disappointed by Operas I've seen here. What is supposed to be world-class ends up looking stale and dated. With the exception of the production of The Magic Flute, you can skip this place.

    If you buy tickets at the box office, you save $7.50 per ticket. Online or telephone purchases add $10 in fees. You only pay $2.50 in person. #lifehack

    Student discount tickets are a great deal. All shows have subtitles cast on the back of the seat in front of you. Dressing up is recommended.
