Tickets for our 2022-2023 Season will go on sale on August 9th. 

Our Commitment to Our Audiences 

The Metropolitan Opera Guild is committed to the safety and well-being of Met audiences, artists, orchestra, chorus, and staff. As part of that commitment, we are implementing a mandatory vaccination policy for everyone attending our live education events this season, including on-site staff, lecturers and artists. In compliance with the CDC guidelines for fully vaccinated individuals, the audience will be at full capacity. At this time face masks will be required within the Rose Building and the Opera Learning Center. Should this policy change, we will notify audience members, prior to the event.

Audience Requirements:
* All audience members must be fully vaccinated. You are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after you have received a second dose in a two-dose vaccine series or two weeks after you have received a single-dose vaccine.

* The Guild will need to see proof of vaccination against Covid-19 with a vaccine approved or authorized for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or by the World Health Organization (WHO).

* All audience members must provide in-person verification of vaccination. Prior to entering the Guild event, you will be asked to provide proof of vaccination through the CLEAR app (if available to you), the Excelsior Pass (for New York State residents), or an original physical vaccination card or photograph of it. Trained individuals will review your proof of vaccination as you arrive at the event.

* All audiences will be asked to sign a Covid-19 waiver when purchasing tickets. If you do not complete this prior to arrival, you will be asked to complete it on arrival to the event.

 Please note that the Met will be implementing a mandatory Covid-19 vaccination policy for audiences, who will be asked to show proof of vaccination upon arrival at the Met. Please visit to learn more.
