Met Opera on Demand offers instant access to more than 450 full-length Met performances, including stunning HD videos from the Met's award-winning Live in HD series of movie theater transmissions; classic telecasts from the 1970s, '80s, and '90s; and hundreds of radio broadcasts dating back to 1936.

All videos include English subtitles, and recent HD videos include subtitles in French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and/or Spanish. New titles are added every month, with most of the Met's Live in HD programs coming online a few months after their live transmission dates. Every opera includes an English synopsis, with synopses in multiple languages available for many operas.

Earlham Libraries will provide personal accounts for class members for 3 months.
