It says Bizet's Carmen is a live recording from 2010, so they are not really live streams.

The streams are of previously recorded live shows. And, yes, I realize all shows at some point are live.

Overwhelming demand - no longer working
Please note: The response to our Nightly Met Opera Streams has been overwhelming, with tens of thousands of opera lovers around the world connecting simultaneously. We are doing everything we can to increase capacity, but in the meantime, if you experience difficulties with the website, we recommend you access the stream through the Met Opera on Demand apps for Apple, Amazon, and Roku devices and Samsung Smart TV. The free streams are available on the apps without logging in by clicking “Browse and Preview” in the apps for connected TV, and “Explore the App” on tablets and mobile devices.

The streaming worked fine for me through the app this afternoon, but the subtitles wouldn’t display. My kids were willing to watch Opera with me, but not without subtitles to follow the story.

Can't believe that I didn't see this until just now.
These Met performances are world class, and a great way to get into opera.

That 2010 performance of Carmen is one of the best Operas I have ever seen
if anyone missed the stream and is looking for it online search Georges Bizet Carmen, Met,( Garanca, Alagna) [2010 into google videos
I am not sure how subs work on that site though.

They give a wait time - before you can watch. I had to wait 10 minutes - and I could watch it with subtitles. What beautiful sets they have - gr8 fun to watch now that one can understand with subtitles! Thanks again OP

I tried the Met Opera on Demand app - but they required sign-in.

How are you getting subtitles? There was no option when played from their website - at least they weren't available early on that I could find...

Subtitles seem to be working for La Bohème, on the website and the app. You have to turn them on though, there is an icon at the bottom of the screen.
You can use the app without signing in, just select Explore App to get in.
I’m pretty sure you can’t watch anymore once they’ve posted the new one for the day. Too bad!

They are fine, unless the set is dark for an effect. - like in front of the stove, etc on a gloomy day

In the GTA at least, opera is probably the best value for a night out. Orchestra performances, musicals, sporting events and concerts are usually more expensive.

Tickets for people under 30 years old are $22, and really great deals on tickets can be had with a subscription.

I started going to the opera because I was cheap lol.

Imagine if they would also serve unlimited pizza and pop for just a couple of dollars more oh my!
Help an animal charity or sanctuary out today. Become a volunteer, advocate, foster a pet, or donate. They need you as much as you need them!
