As the Met will remain dark until September 2021 due to the ongoing global health crisis, the live transmissions scheduled for the 2020–21 season have been canceled. During this time, select cinemas across the globe will exhibit a selection of the following encore titles from past Live in HD transmissions as well as performances from our ongoing Met Stars Live in Concert series. Please check your local cinema listings for more information. Dates and titles will vary internationally.
