The Met: Live in HD

The Met: Live in HD returns to the State Theatre in 2021-2022 with ten performances, including six new productions featuring some of opera’s greatest artists.

Single Tickets and Opera Buff memberships are now available!

At The State Theatre, we have an active opera community, The State Theatre Opera Buffs. Every year it keeps growing and we’d love to see it continue. We offer great benefits for those that show their support by joining. The continuation of the opera broadcasts hinges on your support.
