About the Metropolitan Opera House
The Metropolitan Opera opened its new Lincoln Center home in 1966 with the world premiere of Samuel Barber'Ís Antony and Cleopatra. The opera house, a masterpiece of mid-century modern design, was created by the architect Wallace K. Harrison.
The Metropolitan Opera’s starburst chandeliers have been a beloved fixture of the opera house at Lincoln Center since it opened in 1966. Dubbed “sputniks” after the Russian spacecraft, they reflect light brilliantly through clusters of Swarovski crystals.
