Does anyone know how to get discounted tickets for Lincoln Center, NYC Ballet and Metropolitan Opera?
Is there a system similar to the TKTS for Broadway shows?
The Met has rush tickets that are pretty cheap like $25 standing is cheap but for a long opera you want to sit. You can check their web site to make sure the show is not sold out.
Lincoln Center sometimes sells discounted unsold seats - you have to sign up and you will get emails. It has been awhile, but I don't think I ever saw the ballet or opera on there. There's also a box office on Broadway where they sell some discounted seats to events not selling as well.
