CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Playbill reports:

Although the Metropolitan Opera has brought down the curtain at least through the end of the month over COVID-19 concerns, the New York City institution will offer another way for audiences to take in its performances.

Beginning March 16, the Met will stream a title from its Live in HD series each night through the duration of the closure. The performances, originally captured as live broadcasts in movie theatres worldwide, will begin at 7:30 PM on the company’s website.

The move is among many similar decisions from performing arts organizations across the country, who have canceled performances due to mass gathering restrictions as an effort to curb the spread of the disease.
