In Media Pro, save the metadata back to the files. Sorry, I've forgotten the menu command and it may vary with different versions of MP but try Action > Sync Annotations using the Export option.

Then import the files into Classic Lightroom. In Import, use the Add option.

Test this process with a few files. You'll lose stuff in custom fields, and catalog sets but the latter can be rebuilt with collections and the more-powerful smart collections.

Thanks you for the assistance Roelof. I know enough German so I didn’t have to uses Google too much. If I understand your method it is basically what I have done following John Beardy’s advice shown above. I still have some kinks to straighten out but the basic method of "exporting annotations” from Media Pro to LR classic is working largely.
