Isabel Leonard showed off her dark coffee as she entered the Met Opera’s backstage doors. From her hashtags, it seems like she will be performing with Ben Bliss in a scene from “The Tempest.”

David Daniels shared a picture on Twitter as he was entering rehearsals. He is slated to perform a duet from “Giulio Cesare.”

Joseph Calleja also shared a picture backstage preparing for the 50th Anniversary gala. However, based on his look, it is a bit difficult to guess what he will be performing.

Anna Netrebko is gearing up for the Met gala but before that, she was preparing a concert in Los Angeles. The diva took numerous pictures of La La Land.
