On its web­site, the Met Opera announced that “effec­tive imme­di­ate­ly, all per­for­mances have been can­celed through March 31 because of coro­n­avirus con­cerns.” But that does­n’t mean audi­ences can’t get their fill of opera per­for­mances. Accord­ing to Opera Wire, in an “effort to con­tin­ue pro­vid­ing opera to its audi­ence mem­bers, the Met Opera will host ‘Night­ly Met Opera Streams’ on its offi­cial web­site to audi­ences world­wide.” They add:

These free streams will present encores of past per­for­mances from its famed Live in HD series. The encore pre­sen­ta­tions will begin at 7:30 p.m. each night on the company’s offi­cial web­site and will then be avail­able for an addi­tion­al 20 hours there­after. Each show­case will also be view­able on the Met Opera on demand apps.
