HD Live in Schools
The Met’s HD Live in Schools program brings opera to students across the nation and around the world. Through opera performances, interdisciplinary classroom resources, and virtual interactions with Met stars, the HD Live in Schools program is dedicated to making opera both accessible and thrilling to young audiences.
This season, as the Met celebrates its grand re-opening after the closure occasioned by Covid-19, Met Education will be offering a combination of in-person and virtual programming for students, teachers, and administrators.
Participating school districts receive: tickets to attend performances in the HD Live in Schools season at local movie theaters, provided free of charge; access to Met Opera on Demand; educator guides with in-depth cross-curricular activities and tips to help teachers infuse their classroom teaching with opera; access to virtual professional development workshops; opportunities to meet Met artists in video chats; and media and publicity opportunities.
As always, the HD Live in Schools program is free for participating schools and districts.
