Description

Metropolitan Opera Illustration Glass Ornament

This glass ornament features an illustration of the Metropolitan Opera façade, the fountain at Lincoln Center, and the steps leading up to the plaza. The 3.5” round ornament was designed by Jillian Morris of the Met Opera and includes a yellow ribbon for hanging.

Glass art is made in the USA, utilizing a patent-pending dye sublimation process that creates a uniquely formatted light-scattering coating on ultra-clear polished edge float glass. This process crafts a translucent and almost three-dimensional effect, and the resulting panel is highly resistant to fading in all conditions, including direct sunlight.

Founded in 1883, the Met moved to its current Lincoln Center home in 1966. Architect Wallace K. Harrison designed the instantly recognizable opera house, with its five distinctive arches clad in white travertine. Beyond the façade, a cantilevered staircase, two murals by Marc Chagall, and 11 crystal chandeliers resembling constellations or starbursts – created by Hans Harald Rath of J. & L. Lobmeyr, Vienna – dominate the impressive lobby.

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.
