May I take photos or record anything?
While patrons are permitted to take photos prior to a performance or during an intermission, the photographing or sound recording of any performance without the written permission of The Metropolitan Opera is prohibited as is the use of mobile phones and any other electronic devices during the performance. Offenders may be ejected and liable for damages and other lawful remedies. Lights inside the auditorium are also prohibited. Ticket holders using pen flashlights will be asked to discontinue the practice.
