The Met Opera Global Summer Camp is a new educational initiative to engage and support students worldwide. The free, eight-week online summer camp, from June 15 to August 7, will include a featured opera each week from the Met’s extensive digital library of performances; hands-on creative projects; instruction from core educators and teaching artists; and opportunities to speak directly with Met artists.
The Met Opera Global Summer Camp will take place five days a week and consist of programming for two age groups: 3rd – 6th grades and 7th – 12th grades. Each day, core educators or teaching artists will lead students in a hands-on activity, such as puppet-making and songwriting, to enhance students’ understanding of that week’s featured opera. First, the educator will present the activity live on Zoom. Then, to accommodate the global reach of the program, a recording will be uploaded to Google Classroom for students to engage with the activity at any time.
The Metropolitan Opera is a vibrant home for the most creative and talented singers, conductors, composers, musicians, stage directors, designers, visual artists, choreographers, and dancers from around the world. For more information, click below.
