Metropolitan Opera Season Starts Strong

    The live HD performances are wonderfully produced and they usually only cost $25 per seat. Even better, several of the HD performances are available in public schools in New York City and around the country. The projection and sound equipment in the schools are almost always inferior to what available when the HD broadcasts are viewed in a movie theater, but the price is right; they are free. The performances are not only open to students and teachers, the entire community is welcome to the HD performances in the schools.

    If Professor Mead is interested in checking it out, free HD performances are available at Long Island City High School which is only about five miles from the Jackson Heights neighborhood where he lives. You need to get their early though; seating is first come, first served and a few hundred people usually attend; the school auditorium is often packed and they don’t permit standing room.

    Finally, bravo Professor Mead for patronizing contemporary opera. Few opera fans are willing to do that, but it is important and commendable.
