How It Works

The Met: Live at Home is a streaming platform that allows audiences to watch the Met’s acclaimed Live in HD opera transmissions from any device in the comfort of their homes—created especially for audiences who do not have access to a participating movie theater for the Met’s live cinema transmissions. Streaming is available only in select areas around the world. Please see below for details and frequently asked questions on how to access the program.
