Based on photos of the Old Met in the New Met Documentary, the seats seems like just metal without cushions, at least up in the Family Circle.  Was that true?

I personally think the New Met should be replaced pretty soon.  The house is just too big.  I have yet to see a comedy performed there.  Even the most intimate of operas has to be presented in a grand way.

No opera house should have obstructed view seats.

I loved the idea of created a second (or Little) MET but it never happened.

Considering how patronage is falling dramatically, I can’t imagine the current MET will make much financial sense within 20 years.
