I saw Misty Copeland dance the lead in Don Quixote at the Met in NYC. The audience plays a game in New York I like to call who can start a round of applause and how often. Clapping would start after the dancers, not just...More

A new performance that was cute but should have waited to release xmas time. Story line a bit confusing but overall a cute production.

Enjoyed the show. Seen some great ballet and entertainment. Even if you're not a fan of ballet, like I was... give it a try. You'll be pleasantly surprised. Beautifull theater and people still make an effort to look elegant.

If you are looking for a quality departure from touristy entertainment, CGI shishboombah or being glued to a smart phone, you really can't do better than a visit to ABT. Certainly the best ballet in the city and very likely the best ballet in the...More

Full of operatic and ballet history, if you're a fan of either, the Met is top quality. Saw Giselle and the entire experience was superb. As I understand it, they also offer free rehearsal showings. The best seats, for ballet, would be midway back from...More

We have seen ABT before when visiting New York but never when they were at the Metropolitan Opera House. My emotions about that setting are mixed. On the one hand, the stage could be filled with many dancers, the sets, costumes and extras used to...More

city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

You can visit the gift shop on the first floor at the right entrance to the Metropolitan Opera house. It's fabulous. There are also group tours of the Opera house, home of ABT.
