The Main Box Office is located in the North end of the Front Lobby, and is open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 am until 8:00 pm and Sundays from noon until 6:00 pm. After the Box Office closes, all paid reservations for that performance are transferred to the Ticket Taker at the Front Gate in the lobby of the opera house and tickets are no longer available for purchase for that performance.
Standing room tickets generally cost $20 for Orchestra and $15 for Family Circle. They go on sale at the Box Office on Saturday mornings at 10:00 am for Saturday through the following Friday performances. One ticket per person, per performance may be purchased for cash only. The line often starts much earlier than 10:00 am.
Student Discount Tickets for full time high school and university students, age 29 or under, are available for selected performances and may be purchased at The Met Box Office windows.
