I keep forgetting about OperaVision, which has excellent streamed performances that are then archived and available for a few months—all free. Of the current crop, I'm hoping to view Rusalka (Dutch National Opera), The Turn of the Screw (I Teatri di Reggio Emilia), and A Midsummer Night's Dream (Royal Swedish Opera).

Met's Tannhäuser season premiere interrupted by climate change protesters.

I got a late start in listening to the performance, but thanks to the Sirius XM, was able to start it from the beginning. I took to bed after Act I, but woke up later and the performance had been paused during the Act II song battle, it restarted, but some people in the audience started screaming something almost immediately. Another pause, the Met General Manager came onstage and said the performance would resume again, but they were going to leave the house lights up partially, the better to remove any other troublemakers. At least until I fell asleep again, there were no further problems. Someone at parterre.com posted this video from the first protest:

So, I guess the whole climate change problem is solved now? Hurrah! 🙄
