MET in HD 2020-2021 Season

 

We regret to inform you that the Metropolitan Opera has made the extremely difficult decision to cancel the entirety of the 2020–21 season, based on the advice of health officials who advise the Met and Lincoln Center

For more information, here’s a link to the Met Opera site: https://www.metopera.org/user-information/2020-21-season-update/

Until the 21-22 season begins, why not take advantage of the enormous and unprecedented offerings being made available online by opera companies around the world?

The Met is posting a different opera each evening and keeping it available for almost 24 hours.  Most of these operas were initially shown in theaters as HD broadcasts but the Met is also digging into its archives to pull up Live at Lincoln Center broadcasts first shown over commercial television networks. These are available HERE.

Additionally, about every major opera company and every major orchestra is offering free online streaming of their past productions. 

Other companies streaming operas include

Opernhaus Zürich

Royal Opera House Covent Garden

Bayerische Staatsoper (Munich)
