Join today and enjoy the best of the Met!

 The Young Associates are a group of dynamic young music lovers, ages 21 to 45, who share an interest in meeting fellow opera fans and learning more about this spectacular musical and visual art form.

Members enjoy in-house privileges, special events, and education and social activities designed to bring together young opera-goers in one of the world’s most famous and spectacular cultural venues. Membership begins at the introductory $600 level for members in their 20s and 30s, with full benefits for all members at the $1,250 level. Membership at the $2,500 level includes benefits of the Patron Program and invitations to select Patron Salon events in addition to all Young Associates events. Individual members are welcome to bring a guest to all activities. Membership benefits extend for one year from the time you join.
