Metropolitan Opera Streaming For Free
Like so many public places, the Met in New York has announced it will cancel upcoming performances due to concerns around the coronavirus. However, you can watch New York’s Metropolitan Opera online every night at 7:30 pm starting through March 22!
The new offering will begin on Monday, March 16 with the 2010 HD performance of Bizet’s Carmen, conducted by Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin and starring Elīna Garanča in the title role and Roberto Alagna as Don José. All “Nightly Met Opera Streams” will begin at 7:30pm EDT and will remain available via the homepage of metopera.org for 20 hours.
The Met says, “We’d like to provide some grand opera solace to opera lovers in these extraordinarily difficult times,” said Met General Manager Peter Gelb. “Every night, we’ll be offering a different complete operatic gem from our collection of HD presentations from the past 14 years.”
