American Ballet Theatre's 2014 spring season at the Met has a little bit of everything: knights in shining armor, exotic Indian temple dancers, dolls that come to life and doomed love affairs. Since 1940, ABT has graced the stages of the greatest venues around the world, creating a dance tradition that brings joy to old fans of ballet and creates new fans. This year's program starts with Don Quixote, a whimsical tale that explodes with one show-stopping performance after another, from the bravura dancing of the fiery toreador Espada to a colorful caravan of gypsies. Then it's off to the sweeping vistas and grand temples of mystical India for the great Russian classic, La Bayadere, a glorious epic of eternal love and godly revenge. After that, it's back to Europe for Coppelia, the perfect introduction to ballet. This fairy tale story introduces us to Coppelia, a beautiful doll so lifelike that she causes a lot of trouble between two young lovers. Finally, there's Kenneth MacMillan's dramatic masterwork, Manon, set to Massenet's lush score. This tragic romance soars to searing theatrical heights as the beautiful courtesan Manon chooses between the temptations of wealth and true love. Learn More
I wore Dress to your own taste and comfort. All can be seen from the most elegant to very casual. Regardless of weather, it is good to have layers as simple as a scarf or shawl that you can use to make yourself comfortable in any theater, but I have always found Lincoln Center venues to be well adjusted..dress • Jan 27 2014 star this tip starred
Public transportation is very convenient. I prefer to walk up from Penn Station, and even later at night, if you can endure all else that Times Square entails, the activity ensures it not being desolate for a walk back. That said, due to the length of performance, the LIRR schedule was not accommodating on my return, even having expedited by subway.travel • Jan 27 2014 star this tip starred

While I do love theater,i found out that operas are on a different level.It was quite long and you have to be very patient when reading the language which could be GERMAN,FRENCH OR POSSIBLY ITALIAN. Most people enjoyed the champagne.
Approximate running time is 3 hours, 15 minutes with two intermissions.
Sung in Italian with Met titles in English, German, Italian and Spanish.
Rising tenor Bryan Hymel sings Pinkerton. Philippe Auguin conducts__.
Madama Butterfly__ is a co-production of the Metropolitan Opera, English National Opera, and the Lithuanian National Opera.
