Opera in the Park: Great Fun for All

Opera One

The Metropolitan Opera rolled into Prospect Park last night with an incredible amount of equipment and a huge cast of musicians and singers to present Gounod's Faust. Thousands turned out to watch, listen, have picnics and hang out for a beautiful evening in the park. Rain held off until long after the concert was concluded. The only drawback that we could see was that an extraordinary amount of space in front of the stage was held as reserved seating, meaning that ordinary concert goers couldn't get within 20 or 30 rows of the stage in the center. We know that some of the seating was held for handicapped access. We're not sure who benefited from the rest, although we can guess. We couldn't get close enough to see.
