Met Opera evac­u­ates over sprin­kled pow­der

The Myanmar Times - - World -

New York’s Metropoli­tan Opera was evac­u­ated on October 29 after an au­di­ence mem­ber trig­gered a panic by sprin­kling a pow­der that may have been a friend’s ashes, po­lice said. The lead­ing US opera com­pany was in the in­ter­mis­sion of a mati­nee of Guil­laume Tell when a per­son ap­proached the orches­tra pit and re­leased an ini­tially mys­te­ri­ous sub­stance, the Met said. Po­lice said they had a “good de­scrip­tion of an in­di­vid­ual” re­spon­si­ble but had not made any ar­rests over the in­ci­dent, in which no one was in­jured.
