It's surprising to see so much naked self-interest in the arts section.

You'd think a piece with the title of "What Happens Just Before Show Time at the Met Opera, in 12 Rooms You'll Never See" would actually be about, you know, opera. You'd be wrong.
I'd expect it to be about green room(s), scenery storage, dressing rooms and/or costume shop, prop shop, follow-spot loft, the space under the stage elevator, the usher's dressing room, box office . . . places like that. Without which the show can't go on.
What was it about? (I don't want to bother looking, and since it seems so important to you, you must have it bookmarked.)

It was about ABT preparing for their Ratmansky premiere. I mean, I liked it, but it wasn't what I expected.
