The Metropolitan Opera's orchestra could soon fall silent.

The musicians with Local 802 have authorized a strike, should their current contract talks fail.

The negotiations only recently got underway between the Met, the musicians and 15 other unions.

Met officials are hopeful an agreement can be reached before contracts expire at the end of July.
