Met Offers Free Tickets to Opening Night on Times Square

Metopera

The Metropolitan Opera will offer 5,000 free outdoor seats for next week's opening-night production of Richard Wagner’s “Das Rheingold."

The performance, scheduled for Sept. 27, will be broadcast on seven screens in Times Square.  Two-thousand seats will be available on a first come first served basis with additional standing room provided, the company said. The remaining 3,00 tickets are reserved seats on the Lincoln Center Plaza.

Free tickets, with a limit of two per person, will be distributed at the Met box office beginning Sunday, September 26, at noon, the company said.

Das Rheingold is the first of the four operas that comprise Der Ring des Nibelungen by Wagner.

The October 9 performance of Das Rheingold kicks off the Met’s fifth season of Live in HD transmissions, now seen on more than 1,400 screens in 45 countries.
