I had been to New York City (not counting the airport) just once before, during my Middlebury days. I spent about 8 hours there, and didn't really see anything. I was determined that this trip would be different.

Since we were not that far off, it only took about 10 minutes to get there. We lugged our bags out of the cab and tried to figure out where the opera house was. After wandering around a bit and getting some much needed hydration, we found the Metropolitan Opera House. It was about 30 minutes before the show was to begin. And we had all of our bags. Dominic, being the amazing friend that he is, volunteered to take all the bags and drop them off at the apartment where were were staying.
Our seats were amazing. I never want to sit anywhere else at the opera. I was able to see the orchestra pit for the first time. The opera itself was very good. Lady MacBeth was far and away the show-stealer. MacBeth was ok, but was overshadowed consistently by both MacDuff and Lady MacBeth.
I learned later that you are not allowed to take pictures inside the opera house. I'm glad I found that out after I took all of these.
