With the remaining season at New York’s iconic opera house canceled for the foreseeable future, the management of The Met hopes to brighten the lives of audiences and members even while their stage is dark.

Each day a different presentation from the company’s Live in HD series is released for free through an on-demand streaming service, beginning at 7:30 p.m. EDT. Opera offers a reflection of who we are through dramatic storytelling and music and explores what it means to be human.

The ancient craft deals with big life themes such as love, death, loss, joy, anger, and passion — all the natural emotions we’ll experience as we ride out the pandemic and rebuild a broken world.
