  1. I agree with California. People will not feel safe until a vaccine is created and most of the population has been vaccinated. Even if you already had the virus, the experts say that the immunity is only temporary.
  2. The Met Opera has 3,800 seats, plus 200 standing room spots. Add the orchestra, stage crew, other staff and orchestra to that sum, and you have a gathering of around 5,000.
  3. https://www.billboard.com/articles/business/touring/9359311/new-york-la-live-events-not-until-2021-mayors And NY's Mayor deBlasio agrees. No public gatherings until 2021.
  4. https://news.yahoo.com/los-angeles-mayor-says-large-213731141.html?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly9zZWFyY2gueWFob28uY29tL3locy9zZWFyY2g_aHNwYXJ0PUxrcnkmaHNpbXA9eWhzLVNGMDEmdHlwZT1BTllTX0ExSzZCX2\ The mayor of Los Angeles has indicated that large gatherings will not be taking place until 2021. Assuming NY follows this thinking, this is a highly depressing reality.
  5. Yes, all the drawbacks of living in New York City come into sharp focus when you remove culture, restaurants, sporting events and so on from the equation. This is just an overpriced, overcrowded, filthy city without any of the positives to counterbalance the negatives.
  6. How sad. Will we ever get to give Stella the send off she deserves? This was to be the year of Tom Forster. How much longer will he have to wait for those opportunities.
  7. At a certain point in the very very near future ABT is going to have to step up and make an announcement about the spring season. They are the last holdouts. (Broadway League just announced that shows won't open until June at the earliest. Every other arts organization has cancelled through the end of this season.)
  8. Thank you for your post Christian. Stay strong and thank you for the work you and all medical professionals are doing. Best wishes to you and your family.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. It's on the Koch website. All YAGP events cancelled. I already got my refund by calling the box office.
  12. The Fleming Hvorostovsky Onegin is a gem. It's the only opera performance that has ever brought tears to my eyes.
  13. CDC is recommending no gatherings of more than 50 people for the next 8 weeks.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. Carnegie Hall and the Met Opera are closed through March 31, also the NY Philharmonic.
  20. World Figure Skating Championships are cancelled. Hanyu had been planning to do the quad axel at the competition next week.
  21. mARCH 19, 2020 AIR DATE. THE SYNOPSIS APPEARS TO USE THE NYCB - FINLAY DEBACLE AS THE FOCAL PLOT POINT. https://www.nbcumv.com/programming/nbc-entertainment/law-order-special-victims-unit/episodes-schedule?network=33129
  22. If Misty can't do Deuce Coupe, which is in character shoes, she must have a significant problem. She is still listed for R^ in late March, but that will likely change in the near future.
