Well - tonight there are almost 100 avail in the orchestra tonight, 43 in the parterre, around 80 in the Grand Tier. Family Circle and Balcony always sell out first if there is any buzz, as they are the cheapest.
And this morning all of the standing room places were on sale.

Next Wednesday there are 128 in the orchestra available, 41 in parterre, 95 in the grand tier, 6 in dress circle.

Selling very well though. It seems to be like the WIlliam Kentridge production of THE NOSE = the cognoscenti and art world went crazy and filled all the seats - then they brought it back and played to crickets. I think a remount will sell less well - the opera is of the moment, and after the reviews everyone has to see it.

I could be wrong and it will rival LA BOHEME for sales for years to come - but I dont think so.

It's an important opera for the Met to have produced, and all are rallying around it. And its a NY audience. A staple like the glitzy TURANDOT production will be playing to crickets - its a tourist draw. When buzzy new productions return to the Met - usually - the audience is much smaller - as these are never works that the tourist mobs want to see.
