About The Met Philadelphia


The Met Philly is a $56 million restoration project of the historic Philadelphia Metropolitan Opera House. The structure was originally built in 1908 by opera tycoon Oscar Hammerstein and was once the largest theater in the world of its kind. Renovations on the block-long building began in May 2017, transforming the 110-year old opera house into a 3,500-capacity modern concert venue.

Additional acts and performances are said to be added soon, so be sure to check back here for all the updates!
