Part of the Behind the Golden Curtain: Arts and Artisans at the Met series

In this series of conversations, the Guild’s Director of School Programs and Community Engagement, Stuart Holt, joins Metropolitan Opera musicians, artisans, and administrators for an inside look at the workings of one of the world’s major performing arts institutions.

The social and cultural landscape is changing quickly, and the art of promoting opera performances must evolve along with it. Members of the Met’s Marketing and Communication departments, together with a special guest singer, will talk about the challenges of bringing opera into the digital age. Learn about changing models of ticket buying, social media engagement with artists, creating new benefits for audiences, and more.
