The much anticipated 2021–22 season is underway—and it’s thanks in large part to you, our devoted Patrons. I hope you will join us often at the Opera House to enjoy extraordinary productions throughout the year.

If you are thinking of joining as a Patron, please know that your commitment will make a significant difference and helps to sustain grand opera for generations to come. Please accept my sincere gratitude for your dedication to the Met!
