This season, I'm going to step across the plaza to see some opera at the New York City Opera. Okay, I've been before but I don't consider those operas - Most Happy Fella (ew, it was so bad) and Candide (not that bad, but come on, it's hard to mess up Bernstein). I've seen real opera at the Metropolitan Opera (obvs!), the Lyric Opera in Chicago, Opera Bastille in Paris, Theatre du Champs-Elysees in Paris, and the Washington National Opera. Silly me, there's another opera company practically right at my doorstep. I promise to drop my opera snob 'tude.
