The Metropolitan Opera will open its 2017-18 season on Monday, September 25 with a new production of Bellini’s bel canto tragedy Norma. As part of the Met’s ongoing commitment to making opera more accessible, the opening night performance will once again be broadcast to multiple giant screens in Times Square—a tradition begun in 2006, with free seating for more than 2,000 on a first come, first served basis.
