    Never seen Die Walküre but I've been to the Met plenty of times... it's an awesome experience and highly recommended. Don't be put off by thinking it's stuffy or too formal, most people that attend anything other than the gala show up with business casual (after work) clothes.

    I'll sign up just for the hell of it even though I'm in New York. :)

    I was at the "gala" premier of Le Comte Ory nine days ago, and I in no way felt out of place or under-dressed in my "dressy-business-casual" clothing (black slacks and shirt, no tie or jacket). It really is a mix of all types (I did see Claire Danes and Claudia Schiffer in the Grand Tier restaurant sporting very nice black formal dresses),

    The production of Die Walküre is part of Robert LePage's new Ring production. If you don't win the prize, you can see it live in HD at movie theaters around the world in a few weeks. Although the casting of the Buunhilde and Wotan is "controversial", I expect strpendous things from the Act One Siegmund and Sieglinde, Jonas Kaufmann and Eva Marie Westbroek (fresh from her triumph as 'Anna Nicole' at Covent Garden in February).
