Just in: Peter Gelb bans kids from the MetNews
With customary sensitivity, the Metropolitan Opera has just posted the following:
Children under the age of 12, for whom there is no currently available vaccine, will not be permitted to enter the Met regardless of the vaccination status of their guardians.
Well, no point in stagung Hansel and Gretel, then.
They go on to say:
As soon as children under the age of 12 become eligible to receive a vaccine, fully vaccinated children will be welcomed back to the Met.
It’s not the edict that offends, it’s the wording.
But the Met has the worst customer-facing communications of any opera house outside China. They never learn.
