For Opera lovers - The Metropolitan Opera will host "Nightly Met Opera Streams" on its website. These live streams are free and will present encore's of The Met's acclaimed Live in HD series.
And please don't forget - many of our local museums, theaters, music venues and galleries are in financial trouble due to the pandemic. Please support the arts in any way you can.
