When was the last time the Met had to cancel at the last minute? Given that 
they have covers for every role, it would be understandable if they had no 
system in place. Then again, this is the age of terrorism and terror 
threats, so they shouldn't have been completely caught off guard.

Just to give you an idea, I had a ticket to Plenty at the Public Theater a
couple of weeks ago, and received an e-mail two hours before start that
the performance was cancelled due to actor illness.  Informing audiences
at the last minute is easy nowadays, it is incomprehensible why an
organization the size of the MET is not capable of it.
