Access Opera Remote Learning

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our 2020-2021 Access Opera Virtual Programming! 

Below you will find a number of 3-video series around select operas. Each series is tailored to a specific age group, and contains a module on libretto, music, and design, respectively. Links to supplementary materials, as well as information on where to watch the full opera online for free are provided alongside each video module. Of course, these materials cannot replace the experience of attending a live opera performance, but we hope that they provide some fun and unique content to keep you and your students engaged with the operatic artform until we are able to safely be together at the Met again.

During this 3-video series, we will examine the characters, music themes, and sets that make this opera, presented in a special family-friendly English translation by the Met Opera, a favorite for any season!
