The bad news:  The Metropolitan Opera has closed due to the health crisis.

The good news:  The Metropolitan Opera is providing nightly encore opera performances for free on its website.  A different opera every night!  The webcasts will continue for the duration of the closure.  The performances may also be viewed on all Met Opera on Demand apps.

See the performances here every night at 7:30 PM EDT (GMT-4).

Each performance will be available for 20 hours thereafter.  The operas are from the Met’s Live in HD series.  Below is the schedule for this week.  See this Met website page for more information on the performers and conductors.
