Guild Activities

Celebrating its 75th anniversary, the Metropolitan Opera Guild today is stronger and more active than ever in pursuing its mission to support the Metropolitan Opera and to encourage the appreciation of opera. In 75 years, the Guild has contributed more than $245 million to the Met (figure adjusted for inflation).The Guild provides programs and services in many areas designed to further these goals.

The Guild’s Education Department provides an innovative network of music and arts education programs to hundreds schools and communities worldwide. These programs include rehearsals and performances at the Metropolitan Opera, family education programs to introduce children to opera, an adult lecture series, school residency programs, professional development courses for teachers, and collaborations with colleges and universities throughout the country. 

OPERA NEWS, the monthly magazine published by the Guild, reports on opera around the world.  Each issue includes reviews of commercial recordings and live performances, profiles of artists, and articles by eminent writers on the music scene. During the Saturday afternoon Met broadcast season, the magazine also includes an in-depth guide to both radio and HD broadcasts. With a circulation of over 100,000, it is the world’s largest-circulation magazine devoted to opera. OPERA NEWS also maintains an active web site at www.operanews.com.

The Guild produces an annual series of public programs in major New York City venues both to raise funds for its education programs and to celebrate the art and artists of opera. Foremost among these are the OPERA NEWS Awards, at which five honorees are chosen by the editors of OPERA NEWS and recognized for their distinguished achievement in opera. The Guild’s Annual Luncheon, Met Legends, and Met Mastersingers events also honor the great figures of opera and are attended by thousands of music fans each season.
