In the first of a two-part series, Paul Bushnell goes through the stage door at New York's Metropolitan Opera to find out how it works. His backstage interviews feature a wide range of the key people who get the productions onstage and make it run, including the General Manager Peter Gelb. The talk is interwoven with music from several Met productions, including the opening of the controversial new Ring Cycle directed by Robert Lepage.
