I will talk about the classical stability of black hole microstate geometries. These have an “evanescent ergosurface”: a timelike hypersurface of infinite redshift on which there are stably trapped null geodesics. I will discuss the consequences of such a surface and of stable trapping of geodesics. This includes a heuristic argument for non-linear stability due to these geodesics. Linear perturbations decay particularly slowly in these microstates geometries, and I will discuss the relation to the stably trapped null geodesics and how this slow decay of linear perturbations could be an indication of non-linear instability.
