"The Opera House" Documentary & "50 Years at Lincoln Center" Collection (SET)

This 2-piece set celebrates the storied and rich history of the Metropolitan Opera House in the last half century.

The Opera House (DVD)

The Opera House, a film by award-winning documentary filmmaker Susan Froemke, surveys a remarkable period of the Metropolitan Opera’s rich history and a time of great change for New York. Featuring rarely seen archival footage, stills, recent interviews, and a soundtrack of extraordinary Met performances, the film chronicles the creation of the Met’s home of the last 50 years against the backdrop of the artists, architects, and politicians who shaped the cultural life of New York City in the ’50s and ’60s. Among the notable figures in the film are famed soprano Leontyne Price, who opened the new Met in 1966 in Samuel Barber’s Antony and Cleopatra; Rudolf Bing, the Met’s imperious General Manager who engineered the move from the old house to the new one; Robert Moses, the unstoppable city planner who bulldozed an entire neighborhood to make room for Lincoln Center; and Wallace Harrison, whose quest for architectural glory was never fully realized.  

50 Years at Lincoln Center (3-CD)

On May 7, 2017, the Met celebrated its golden anniversary in Lincoln Center with a spectacular gala featuring some of the greatest artists in opera.

The 3-CD set is packaged with a 40-page booklet comprised of articles from the Playbill, the gala concert dinner program, timeline, and photos.

Featuring conductors Marco Armiliato, James Levine, and Yannick Nézet Séguin.
