Madama Butterfly New York Schedule

If you're sitting in the Metropolitan Opera and waiting for the curtain to go up to see Madama Butterfly, you're off to a good start. But are you a little worried that you didn't do enough sight-seeing this weekend? That you jumped right into a performance without taking in the rest of the beautiful city that you're in? Well fear not, there's plenty of solutions available to you in such a magnificent city! In the Big Apple, it's hard to run out of places to go. Maybe you feel like taking in some of the modern marvel known as Central Park, a feat of human engineering that still impresses to this day. Why not take a horse carriage ride around the park, or visit the local zoo? You can even pay your respects to the late John Lennon by heading over to Strawberry Fields, a part of the park that's been set aside by local residents as a memorial to The Beatles and their music. Or maybe you want to take a trip down to Battery Park to visit the new Freedom Tower, a symbol of the renewed American spirit after so much tragedy has happened at that site? Or perhaps you're more in the mood to just pick up tickets through StubHub to see a Yankees game as they take on their greatest foes on the field at Yankee Stadium. There's really no end to the number of options available to you when it comes to places to visit in New York City.
