2. It's excellent.

In addition to the building of the new Metropolitan Opera House it's a study of the neighborhood, urban planning and destruction (Robert Moses) and a vanished epoch of NYC and American history. Soprano Leontyne Price, who opened the New House at Lincoln Center, is interviewed in the documentary. At 90 she is sharp as a tack, nostalgic and retains a wonderful sense of humor. I happen to be a major opera lover and live around the corner from the New Met. I have lived in Lincoln Square (the neighborhood out of which Lincoln Center was carved) my entire adult life since graduating college (1971), so the film really resonated strongly with me.
