History

About The Metropolitan Opera

Founded in 1883, the Metropolitan Opera moved to its Lincoln Center home in 1966.  

The opera house was designed by Wallace K. Harrison. Five distinctive arches clad in white travertine form the entrance. The lobby is dominated by a cantilevered stairway, two murals by Marc Chagall, and 11 crystal chandeliers resembling constellations or starbursts.

The two paintings by Marc Chagall decorate the front lobby. On the south wall is “The Triumph of Music,” on the north wall is “The Sources of Music.” There are also statues by Aristide Maillol and Wilhelm Lehmbruck. The crystal chandeliers in both the lobby and auditorium were designed by Hans Harald Rath of J. & L. Lobmeyr of Vienna. Numerous portraits of great Met artists of the past are on display in Founders Hall, on the lower level of the lobby, and costume and memorabilia displays can be found in several locations in the lobby.
