For 2019, we have an exciting addition to our tours programme with the release of our New York: The Metropolitan Opera, Galleries and Museums tour. Recently, the Met has seen a huge rise in its global audience thanks to the high-definition live cinema broadcast and wonderful as these are, there is nothing like the thrill and excitement of a live performance at the Met. A tour highlights is a backstage tour, dinner at The Grand Tier and performance of La Traviata at the Metropolitan Opera. We also visit the fabulous Lincoln Centre for a performance by the New York Philharmonic. We add visits to the city’s best known museum – The Metropolitan Museum of Art and also visit the lesser know yet stunning Frick Museum collection, one of the world’s finest private art collections.
New York stands above all other American cities. Its museums and art galleries are outstanding. Just strolling through the streets of Manhattan admiring the various architectural styles is a cultural feast of its own. Some important museums and galleries include The American Museum of Natural History at Central Park West 79th Street, the Frick Collection of Art Treasures featuring Goya, Titian, El Greco and Renoir. Among others is The Guggenheim Museum at 1071 5th Avenue at 89th Street designed by Lloyd Wright, the source of debate since it opened in 1959, The Museum of Modern Art at 11th and West 53rd Street, considered to be the most important museum of modern art in the world, and of course the Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of the worlds most impressive centres of culture. The classical musical scene in New York is exceptionally busy with the highest of standards and some of the best productions with world-class artists. Book your place today and feel the unique excitement of New York city.
