The Friends of the Westfield Memorial Library sponsor a Wednesday subscription series to the Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center in New York. Transportation is by charter bus from Westfield to Lincoln Center. There are several openings and new participants are invited to join. Ticket prices range from $28 (Family Circle) to over $180 (Orchestra) per performance – your choice! The bus usually leaves at 5:00 PM from Westfield. Bus price and seating will be determined based upon the most cost-effective way for ticket holders.


Members who are not interested in a full subscription may share a subscription with friends or other interested participants and still enjoy the 15% discount on subscription ticket prices. Alternatively, you can sign up for one whole subscription and change one or more operas to other ones on the list (eg double them) to enjoy them together with a friend or spouse. If you cannot attend an opera you may exchange the ticket through the Met subscription office or sell it to someone else. The opera group maintains a “Standby List” of people who have expressed an interest in buying tickets for individual operas. If you are interested in participating as subscriber or a standby and would like more information, please contact Ulf Dolling at 908-347-3563 or
