The Metropolitan Opera has not held a performance in its cavernous theater since March 11, 2020. The next day it was closed due to the pandemic and remained that way for almost a year and a half.

But the company said on Friday it would finally return indoors on September 11, with a performance of Verdi’s Requiem to mark the 20th anniversary of the attacks. The event will also be broadcast live on PBS, hosted by ballet star Misty Copeland.

Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Music Director of the Met, will conduct the company’s orchestra and choirs, soprano Ailyn Pérez, mezzo-soprano Elina Garanca, tenor Matthew Polenzani and bass baritone Eric Owens. Five hundred free tickets will be made available to the families of the victims of the attacks; the remaining tickets will be $ 25. Spectators will need to have proof of vaccination status and wear masks.

The concert will take place before the previously announced opening night of the Met’s season on September 27: the first company of Terence Blanchard’s “Fire Shut Up in My Bones”.

Corn a major obstacle remains: The company is in tense negotiations with the union representing its orchestral musicians and has not yet announced an agreement. In recent months, the Met has made deals with unions representing its stagehands and choirs, soloists, dancers, comedians and stage managers. The company is seeking to reduce the salaries of the musicians in its orchestra, who have not been paid for nearly a year after the opera closes.
