The Met Live in HD Celebrates 10 Years of Bringing Opera to Movie Theaters: See Wagner, Verdi, and Puccini on the Silver Screen for the Cost of a Pizza

See the Metropolitan opera for the cost of a movie ticket! 

Can't afford to pay for the Metropolitan Opera's extravagant rendition of Richard Wagner's Das Reingold? Don't worry about burning through your checkbook to see the Met. The Met is coming to a movie theater near you with The Met: Live in HD film series. You don't have to be rolling in dough to enjoy the best that the Met has to offer. Shot in impressive HD and larger than life, The Met: Live in HD series opens up a new and exciting world of music and opera at regular movie ticket prices that anyone can afford.


Why did the Metropolitan Opera create this series? Created by a grant from Metropolitan Opera sponsors The Neubauer Family Foundation, this Emmy Award-winning series is the Met's answer to the growing economic crises which has negatively affected the pocketbook of every major classical music institution. Growing a new generation of opera lovers is nearly impossible with music education taking cuts all over the country and parents more worried about paying rent than increasing their children's cultural awareness. The Met: Live in HD presents an innovative approach to opera by bringing the extraordinary classical performances of the Met to schools and movie theaters nationwide.
