Free Student Streams

Welcome to the Metropolitan Opera’s Free Student Streams! Each week, we’ll be offering one opera specially selected for our young audience members around the globe, along with a collection of educational materials that will help viewers engage with and enjoy the performance.

For more resources—including educator guides in English and Spanish, illustrated synopses, musical arrangements, and further opportunities for viewing opera—visit the main Met Education page.


New! Young Opera Lovers Curate the Free Student Streams

This summer, Met Education brought together a worldwide community of young opera lovers through our first-ever Global Summer Camp. Now, we are joining forces with these ardent opera fans to curate the upcoming Free Student Streams. Each week, one of our Campers will choose their favorite opera to stream. In a few words, they’ll tell you what they love about this opera and offer something you should look and listen for as you watch.

This week: Carmen

A gritty tragedy starring the most famous of all operatic vixens, set among the Romani people in Seville

Curated by Marius from Charlottetown, Canada

As we continue to address the overwhelming economic implications of the coronavirus pandemic, the Met remains committed to providing excellent educational opportunities to all students free of charge through our HD Live in Schools program, our Free Student Streams, and our Global Summer Camp. If you would like to help, please consider making a gift today to support our education initiatives.
