Opera

The Met Live 2018/19 season kicks off on Sat 6 Oct with Anna Netrebko in the title role of Verdi's Aida   This is their 13th year of bringing world class opera to the world, and they start this season with a new Music Director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin. 

There are four new productions alongside revivals of popular productions of new and old classics, and the season features the most popular of Wagner's epic Ring operas, Die Walküre.  We are offering a number of Encore performances as well as the Live events.  The Encores are a recording of the live opera offered at a convenient matinee time the following day and include all the additional content that makes these Met Live experiences so rewarding.

Compare and contrast:  Lincoln Center has a seating capacity of approximately 3,800; the Lexi has 75 seats, making it somewhat smaller than the orchestra pit at the Center.  Additionally we lay on one of the UK's top cinema sound systems, a free glass of fizz, and the option of attending in your best bib and tucker or your bedroom slippers!

Seating is assigned for the operas.  Tickets are £30 but Lexi Members receive a £5 discount.  Join now, and begin to reap the benefits.   If you are a member and are trying to purchase tickets for an opera which takes place beyond the expiry of your membership, please call the booking line so they can process this over the phone for you.  The booking line is 020 3011 5523, and it is answered between 11:00 - 6:00, Mon - Fri.
