Directed by Susan Froemke | 2017

Award-winning documentary filmmaker Susan Froemke surveys a remarkable period in the rich history of the Metropolitan Opera. Featuring rarely seen archival footage, stills, recent interviews, and a soundtrack of extraordinary Met performances, The Opera House chronicles the creation of the Met’s storied home of the last 50 years and the artists, architects, and politicians who shaped the cultural life of New York City in the 50s and 60s. Among the notable figures profiled are soprano Leontyne Price, who opened the new Met in 1966 with Samuel Barber’s Antony and Cleopatra; Rudolf Bing, the Met’s imperious general manager, who engineered the move from the old house to the new one; and Wallace Harrison, whose quest for architectural glory was never fully realized.
