Metropolitan Opera Guild Announces Return to Backstage Tours

By David Salazar

The Metropolitan Opera Guild has announced its Backstage Tours are set to make a return.

The tours will recommence on Dec. 4, 2022 and will allow visitors a chance to go behind-the-scenes at the famed opera house. The 75-minute walking tours will take place on some weekdays at 3 p.m. local time and on Sundays at 10:30 a.m.

The tours had been discontinued during the COVID-19 outbreak; even though the Met Opera reopened its doors for the 2021-22 season, the tours did not return due to the ongoing concerns over COVID.

“After almost three years, it’s wonderful to be able to bring backstage tours back,” said Stuart Holt, Director of Learning and Engagement, Metropolitan Opera Guild, in an official press statement. “This program offers participants an inside look at Met productions, and we hope it makes their visit to the opera house even more special.”
