The plaza adjacent to Fordham’s Leon Lowenstein Building provided a temporary home for the Metropolitan Opera’s opening-night simulcast on Sept. 22.

The University agreed to host the annual event, which usually takes place on the Lincoln Center Plaza, due to ongoing construction at the performing arts venue. Opera fans who detoured a few blocks south to see Renée Fleming sing selections from La Traviata, Manon and Capriccio, however, didn’t seem to mind.

The simulcast is scheduled to return to its traditional location next year.
