What should I wear to the New York Metropolitan Opera?

What should I wear to the New York Metropolitan Opera? Topic: Business plan formal
July 17, 2019 / By Cade
Question: My girlfriend is a music major, so for her birthday, I've purchased tickets for La Boheme at the Metropolitan Opera. The real question is, what kind of decorum should I expect in terms of what to wear? I'm planning on wearing a Tuxedo, and she's wearing a fancy dress. Is that overdoing it? What should I wear? I was going to take her to dinner first.

A formal business suit would be more appropriate than a tuxedo. The exception would be if you were going to a "gala event" at the Met, such as a fundraiser, or formal dinner for major donors. Your girlfriend can stick with her fancy dress.

it depends on the kind of theatre you're going to see it in but something like this always works; black leggings with a black shirt (with some pretty details like sparkles or embroidery) that covers your butt and black shoes with a little heel if you like. all black is always flattering, slimming, and elegant. just add some accessories. or, you can wear a low key dress, dress pants and a dressy shirt, or a knee length skirt and a blouse, all with heels or ballet flats. you can wear your hair natural if you like, i personally think wavy hair is beautiful, like pin half of it up and half of if down. or you can straighten it, or pull it into a side chignon; an elegant bun smoothed behind one of your ears. wearing a little bit of shimmery make up and lip gloss also helps tremendously with looking more glamorous for such an occasion and looking older but don't over do it. i hope this helps! the Phantom of the Opera is totally awesome i hope you have a great time!

I go to the opera a few times a year. I only rarely see a tuxedo. Nice business dress is more appropriate. Oddly enough, women often dress much nicer than men, so your if your girlfriend wants to go all out, she'll still be very appropriate. But give up on the tux!

I am glad that you realize that the opera is still one of the few dressy events that we have left. A tuxedo may be a little over the top, but a suit is in order.

If you are going to the opera, a tuxedo is a must. https://www.myowntuxedo.com/c-1-formal-c... GOOD LUCK

Genesis would be a good biblical story. It starts out with a void (silence) followed by the creation of the earth out of chaos. The creation of light can be very dramatic in an opera, not only because of the musical possibilities, but also because a sudden bright light occurring at the same time as a powerful chord would be unforgettable. After all the powerful music of God and the universe, you would get the human story of Adam and Eve, which would be the main focus of the opera. The creation of the universe would be the overture. It should be long, perhaps twenty or thirty minutes, plus there should be a narrator, either singing or reciting the opening verses. But as I said, the main focus should be Adam and Eve. The story of Cain and Abel would probably be too much, I would end the opera with Adam and Eve walking away from Paradise. As for research, I suggest you look at Haydn's Creation. For the void, look at the prelude to Tristan and Isolde, which has dissonant harmonies which don't resolve (perfect). For God, there are several good examples, such as Bach. I think Albert Schweitzer write about this subject, but I would have to check. I'm a young composer. I hope you e-mail me.
