Education at the Met
The Metropolitan Opera is committed to deepening student experiences with opera through access to our world-class productions, both in New York City and in schools across the country.
For over a decade, the Met’s landmark HD Live in Schools initiative has brought live opera broadcasts to students nationwide. To supplement these broadcasts, the Met crafts a series of educational materials that encourage and empower students, teachers, and community members to engage with and enjoy this art form. All of these materials are available free of charge via the links below.
