In light of the circumstances involving the COVID-19 virus and in consultation with the office of the Mayor, the Metropolitan Opera has canceled all performances and rehearsals through March 31, effective immediately.

Met General Manager Peter Gelb said, “With health authorities urging social distancing with greater emphasis, it is simply untenable for us to continue to perform, as it puts our artists, staff, and audiences at risk. I would like to express my deep personal regret that the situation has led us to this point.”

This Saturday’s Live in HD movie-theater presentation of Der Fliegende Holländer has also been canceled. For more information, please contact your local cinema.
