Educator Guides

Met Opera Education produces a suite of interdisciplinary, classroom-ready curricular materials designed for students across grade levels. Our signature Educator Guides offer an interdisciplinary introduction to opera, empowering students to deepen their engagement with the art form while meeting state and national academic standards. Each guide includes historical background on the opera and its source, a timeline of the composer’s life, synopses for young readers, contextual essays, fun facts, and plug-and-play classroom activities. 

Met Opera Education is strongly dedicated to bilingual and Spanish-language instruction. Many of our Educator Guides are also available in Spanish translation. All guides listed below are available as PDFs; all guides created since 2019 are also viewable in an online format optimized for screen-readers.
