  1. This suggests that the cancellation of operas will extend beyond Mar 31, although I'm not aware of any formal announcement yet. Carnegie Hall has officially cancelled all shows through May 10. That comports with the CDC's rec. that all gatherings of 50+ should be suspended for 8 weeks.
  2. no,I've gotten a credit to my account. Today I requested a refund via email. I received an acknowledgement of my email with a statement that due to the high volume of requests they would be unable to process the request for 7-10 days. So far the only refunds credited to my credit card have been from the Koch for the YAGP gala and from BAM. I'm waiting on refunds from Carnegie, NY Phil, Met Opera and City Center.
  3. It's on the Koch website. All YAGP events cancelled. I already got my refund by calling the box office.
  4. The Fleming Hvorostovsky Onegin is a gem. It's the only opera performance that has ever brought tears to my eyes.
  5. CDC is recommending no gatherings of more than 50 people for the next 8 weeks.
  6. Arts organizations can purchase business interruption insurance. The Broadway theaters were waiting for Cuomo to ban gatherings of over 1,000 people before they announced the shut downs. The government edict was essential to the decision to close from the standpoint of being able to collect the insurance.
  7. The Youth America Grand Prix at the Koch is cancelled.
  8. I've been down this road with Met in prior seasons. The folks at the box office have said that ABT is a separate entity, so any funds in the opera account cannot be applied to purchase ballet tickets.
  9. If you figure it out please share. I do not see any way to convert the funds to a refund just by logging into my account. I have many opera tickets in March and hell will freeze over before I allow all that money to end up as a Met donation.
  10. They are swamped with refund requests. They have automatically applied my refund for my Sat opera tixs to my Met Opera account, without my consent. However my understanding is that if you do not use the money by the end of the current Met Season (May 2020) it converts to a donation to the Met. Also you cannot apply your Met Opera account funds to ABT tickets. This will probably take hours of being on hold to resolve.
  11. I really wanted to see Lisette Oropessa in Traviata but the remaining performances this season are cancelled. Fortunately she will return next season for a few Traviata performances.
  12. Carnegie Hall and the Met Opera are closed through March 31, also the NY Philharmonic.
  13. World Figure Skating Championships are cancelled. Hanyu had been planning to do the quad axel at the competition next week.
