Welcome to the Musicians of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra website. Considered by many critics and classical music fans to be the greatest opera orchestra in the world, and perhaps one of the greatest orchestras in the world. On this site you can learn more about the orchestra and the musical artists that make up The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.
“I am running out of good things to say about the Met Orchestra and its music director, James Levine. If there is someone out there with a new repertory of complimentary adjectives suitable to this exquisite marriage of taste and heart, I would be glad to give way....People who play in opera orchestras work long hours and rarely act as happy as these musicians... Maybe it is simply the happiness of the orchestra's situation: loaded with individual talent, ... and never seeming to tire of its music director.”
