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.
