Metropolitan Opera: We’re staying openmain
Latest update from the Met:
The safety and security of our audiences and employees is the Met’s highest priority. We are following the lead of our city, state, and federal elected officials as we take steps recommended by the Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
At present, no Met performances have been canceled.
Here in the opera house, our cleaning crew has increased its efforts both in public spaces and behind the scenes. We have installed additional hand-sanitizer dispensers just outside the auditorium to help our audience stay healthy. Staff members are receiving regular updates and have been encouraged to stay home if they feel ill.
As we monitor the ever-developing situation, we ask that ticket-holders to upcoming performances who feel unwell please stay home and rest.
