In the past, going to the opera was something that was affordable only for a handful of wealthy people. Today companies like the Metropolitan Opera aim to raise a new generation of opera lovers and to make opera open and available to everyone. To​ do so, they founded the Summer Recital Series in the parks, the annual free opera performances. It's not only a great opportunity to listen to some beautiful music but also to gather with your friends and spend a lovely evening with drinks and snacks. Don't worry if you won't get a seat right in front of the stage. You can still hear the music and enjoy the perfo​rmance. Summer Recital Series are held at Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Jackie Robinson Park and other locations throughout the city.
