The Metropolitan Opera
Saturdays at 12:00 pm
From its opening in 1883, the Metropolitan Opera has been one of the world's leading opera companies. Today, the Met's preeminent position rests on the elements that established its reputation: high quality performances with many of the world's most renowned artists, a superior company of orchestral and choral musicians, a large repertory of works, and the resources to make performances available to the public.
Each season the Metropolitan stages more than two hundred performances of opera in New York. More than 800,000 people attend the performances in the opera house during the season. Millions more, throughout the world, experience the Metropolitan Opera on television, through cinemacasts, radio, on tour and recordings.
WFMT offers a complete opera every Saturday at noon with productions from the following companies:
Metropolitan Opera (winter)
Lyric Opera of Chicago (May-July)
LA Opera on Air (July-August)
San Francisco Opera (August-October)
