The Metropolitan Opera (or the "Met", as it is known to many) is perhaps the most well-known and beloved opera company in the United States, and possibly, the world. The website is a mirror onto the world of the Met's numerous opera productions, its history, and the overall portrait of this delightful melding of words, emotions, and song. Visitors will want to start by perusing the "Discover Opera" section of the site, where they can read plot synopses of Met productions and also look through a entertaining interactive exhibit that covers the Met's history from 1883 to 2004. Here they will learn when the production of Salome offended polite New York society, and continue on to learn about the tenure of Rudolf Bing. Perhaps the most outstanding feature of the site is the Met Opera Database, which give users access to information on every single performance at the Met since 1883, complete with statistics, photos, and set designs.
