If you start to get the winter doldrums this month, there’s nothing like the beauty of butterflies to get you out of your funk. Head to the Museum of Natural History for one of the museum’s most popular annual seasonal exhibitions.

La Bohème at the Met.
A Met staple for more than 30 years, Zeffirelli’s La Bohème is a marvel of highly detailed production design and atmosphere. Seeing the Latin Quarter of Paris come to life in La Bohème remains one of the highlights of the New York opera experience.
