Met Shawl With Fringe

Depicting a stylized arch motif reminiscent of the Met Opera House façade, this luxurious shawl is hand-woven in Peru from 100% pure alpaca wool, which lends softness and an abundance of warmth.

Yarns of grey, dark grey, taupe and cream are finely woven together to create a stunning overall design, which is unique and reversible. Each 3 inch long strand of fringe is hand-rolled and finished with a small tassel detail.

Made exclusively for the Met at 18.5” wide x 77” long, our glamorous shawl can be styled off the shoulders, about the neck or front to back with any attire.

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.
