Each will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will remain available on metopera.org for 20 hours. If you happen to use a Met Opera on Demand app, it will be available there too.
For those of you who aren’t multi-lingual, when you watch the live stream, you can click on the small box at the bottom right that is labeled “CC”. This will provide captions in English for you.
