The Metropolitan Opera’s website and box office are back after a cyberattack that impacted the company for over a week.

The company said, “we are pleased to announce that we are once again able to process your ticket orders through our website and in person at our box office. On Dec. 6, the Met experienced a cyberattack that temporarily impacted our network systems and while all performances took place as scheduled, we were unable to process ticket orders or access our website.”

The company added, “based upon our ongoing investigations into the recent cyberattack, we would like to reassure our customers that ticketing customer data, including credit card information, used when purchasing tickets, has not been stolen. We do not keep credit card information in the systems that were affected by the cyberattack.”

The company also noted that rush tickets are available. The Met reported a cyberattack on Dec. 7 which brought down all the systems and the company was not allowed to sell tickets.
