Backstage Tours have concluded for the 2014-2015 opera season. Backstage Tour reservations for the 2015-2016 season will be available for purchase starting in late September.  

Go behind the scenes for an exclusive look at what it takes to make operatic magic at the Met! Tours offer a fascinating backstage look at one of the world’s premiere performing arts organizations, including visits to the scenic and carpentry shops, rehearsal rooms, dressing rooms, and stage area.* Tours begin and end in the Met lobby and are held during the Met performance season on most weekdays at 3:00PM and some Sundays at 10:30AM and/or 1:30PM.

Reservations are $25 per person for the general public, $22 per person for Guild Members, and $20 for students & groups of 10 or more. For reservations, please call (212) 769-7028 (Monday–Friday, 10AM–4PM) or visit the online calendar.
