A slew of arts organizations have announced cancellations due to Friday’s Boston-area lockdown as police searched for marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Authorities lifted the “stay home” alert this afternoon.

Cancellations include tonight’s Boston Baroque concert scheduled for Jordan Hall, Amon Tobin at the Paradise Rock Club, Joy Formidable at the House of Blues, Brown Bird at Brighton Music Hall, Ninety Miles at Berklee Performance Center, and all Blue Man Group performances. The Big Apple Circus canceled both its performances today, 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

In addition, the following performances and events will not go on today: “The Book of Mormon” at the Opera House; American Repertory Theater’s “Beowolf — A Thousand Years of Baggage” at Club Oberon; Boston Philharmonic at Symphony Hall; ‘Ryan Landry’s M’ at the Calderwood and all events scheduled at the BCA Plaza Theatres; Boston University College of Fine Arts “La Clemenza di Tito” at BU Theatre; “No Operation Epsilon” at Central Square Theater; Company One’s production of “She Kills Monsters” at the Boston Center of the Arts; and Night 2 of the Rock ’n’ Roll Rumble semifinals at T.T. the Bear’s Place, which would have had performances by Eddie Japan, Camden, New Highway Hymnal, and Twin Berlin.


Earlier today, the Boston Symphony Orchestra postponed its afternoon concert.

Cancellations extend into next week as well. The opening of the Museum of Fine Arts exhibition “Michelangelo: Sacred and Profane,” which had been scheduled for Sunday, has been delayed until Tuesday.
