Metropolitan opera

"People are angry, they want to see this settled. They would like to see opera return, and they're very dedicated to it...But the management is playing hardball."
The Metropolitan Opera, the largest performing arts organization in the U.S., announced today that it had canceled its entire 2020-2021 season.
"It is indicative of a trend happening across the country at opera and choral performances—most of the venues are shutting down or cancelling performances."
NYC's cultural institutions are starting to think about ways to adapt to our radically different cultural landscape.
In addition, all Metropolitan Opera performances and all events at Carnegie Hall have been canceled through March 31st.
'I am happy that, at the age of 78, I was able to sing the wonderful title role in the dress rehearsal of Macbeth, which I consider my last performance on the Met stage.'
The orchestra pit's musicians became concerned when they saw a man sprinkling a powder in their section.
Police have identified the man who sprinkled the ashes but have not charged him with anything.
The Met's performance of 'Guillaume Tell' was canceled during the second intermission after reports of a suspicious substance.
"The music and the chorus are quite excellent," Rudy allowed.
The opera is about the hijacking of the Achille Lauro and murder of a Jewish-American passenger.
