This is just in, in my inbox that is! So now it looks like the Met Opera has given up on the rush lottery — due to “audience feedback”. Instead they are now going to release rush tix from the website only at noon (most days) on a first come first serve basis on the day of the performance. Info on the new system here.
I was NO fan of the rush lottery introduced in September. Only time will tell if this will work better OR TOTALLY CRASH THE SYSTEM.
11/21 update: You can go to my “how-to-get-cheap-seat” post, which now includes the low-down Rush 2.2.
