The Metropolitan Opera Guild

Score-Desk Seats

 

Score-desk seats are located in the Family Circle Boxes of the Metropolitan Opera House. These special seats offer no view of the stage, but are equipped with a desk and reading light, enabling study of an opera’s score during the performance. Score-desk seats cost $12 for the general public, $10 for Guild members, and $8 for students; there are special prices for Gala performances.

Many piano-vocal scores are available from our lending library, including:

La Bohème
Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci
Cendrillon
Les Contes d’Hoffman
Cosi fan tutte
L’Elisir d’Amore
Lucia di Lammermoor
Luisa Miller
Madama Butterfly
The Magic Flute (German Only)
The Merry Widow
Le Nozze di Figaro
Norma
Parsifal
Roméo et Juliette
Thais
Tosca
Il Trovatore
Turandot

Please call 212-769-7028 (M-F, 10AM-4PM) to arrange a score rental. 

If you wish to enhance your score desk experience, consider a score-reading workshop. Find out more information here
