Mercury Lounge

This bar/concert hub hybrid is known as a launching pad for New York rockers who've hit it big in the past decade or so—from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to Interpol to The Strokes—so those here for a show always have a chance of seeing the next big act. The 250-capacity dance floor gets loud and crowded, filled with all types of music lovers (postpunk rockers to an alternative crowd to old school rockers), but if you can't take the bass, step away from the speakers. See website for schedule of events.

Metropolitan Opera

The Met’s 2019-2020 season opens on Sept. 23, 2019, with a new production of the Gershwins’ “Porgy and Bess.”

Other new productions this season are Philip Glass’ “Akhnaten,” Alban Berg’s “Wozzeck,” George Frideric Handel’s “Agrippina” and Richard Wagner’s “Die Fliegende Holländer.”

•  Operas are traditionally sung in their language of origin; Met Titles is the name of the system created by and used at the Metropolitan Opera by which English translations are projected on individual screens on seat backs. Patrons have the option of turning Met Titles on or off.
