Description

Met Opera Mug & Box

One of the best-loved items in our exclusive collection, the Met Opera porcelain mug depicts a digital photo of the five-arched Metropolitan Opera House and the Robertson Fountain against a blue sky at twilight.

A masterpiece of mid-century modern design, the opera house was created by architect Wallace K. Harrison and opened in 1966.

“The Metropolitan Opera” is rendered across the top of the image in an elegant flourished script. Running along the inside lip is the Metropolitan Opera logo in black and grey. It is finished with a white scrolled handle.

This piece also makes a handsome decorative object on a table or shelf by itself.

Each 12 oz. mug comes in a sturdy deluxe box printed with the same image and ornate script. Dishwasher and microwave safe.

An excellent memento of one’s visit to the Met and an ideal choice for fans of the Metropolitan Opera.

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 conceived by Tad Leski of Harrison & Abramovitz and the design developed and fabricated 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.
