I'll be sad to see my Monday series go. I've had it for many years, and 
I've kept as many as possible on Mondays when exchanging. So Monday is 
opera night. I wouldn't, of course, begrudge the Met changing the day 
off in the interest of higher sales. Thursday is Philharmonic night, and 
Monday/Thursday is good spacing when we happen to have both in the same 

I actually prefer to go on weeknights, even though it means coming from 
work and getting home late when I have to get up in the morning. My 
subscription partner and I had dinner before operas and concerts more 
often before the weekday starts moved to 7:30. It takes me at least 45 
minutes to get to Lincoln Center from work in Queens, and at least an 
hour to get home to Brooklyn afterward. I wouldn't mind earlier 
finishes, but when I'm busy at work, getting there at 7:30 can be enough 
of a challenge. The 7, 6:30 and 6pm starts (most of them operas we're 
likely to see) take some extra planning.

And presumably the backstage/performer contracts still require a certain 
amount of downtime between daytime rehearsal and evening performance, so 
evenings couldn't regularly start much earlier.
