Times Square as always been full of loudmouths, but this time they’ve got something different to say. In fact, this time they’re singing. The Metropolitan Opera will broadcast the opening of its 2006 season – its lavish sold out production of Puccini’s Madame Butterfly – to thousands of viewers in Times Square. About 650 seats will be available on a first-come first-serve basis. Standing room will also be provided.
If you’re looking for a less neon experience, the opera will also be shown at Lincoln Center Plaza. Tickets are required for admission, but are available for free from the Met box office. Get them quick!
The Times Square broadcast will begin at 6:30pm, and the Lincoln Center at 6:00pm.
