What are the security procedures at the Met?
We have taken many steps to ensure a safe environment for our valued patrons and employees. These procedures have been put in place after consultation with law enforcement agencies as well as security professionals. These initiatives are not necessarily visible to patrons. Please do not bring bags, parcels or luggage to the Metropolitan Opera House. Due to increased security measures, the Opera House will open forty-five minutes prior to scheduled curtain times for operas, and thirty minutes prior to scheduled curtain times for ballets.
