Opera tickets 

Attendees should buy the tickets they can afford.  If you are unfamiliar with the seating at the Met (view obstructions including those upstage and in the wings), it is strongly suggested that you call 212-362-6000 and talk to a Met seating agent rather than buying your ticket on-line. 

Ticket prices range from $37 - $460.

Try to avoid all of the side box seats and standing room. Try to keep your seats towards the center. You don't have to buy an orchestra seat to have a great view.

Do not wait to buy your ticket.
