The Metropolitan Opera Guild

Score Reading Workshops 
 
Saturday morning score reading classes delve into the musical highlights of an opera, giving beginner and intermediate readers the tools to explore the intricate workings of a score and experience a new way of listening to opera. Learn more about how a composer tells a story in music and about important historical events and artistic movements that influenced each opera’s creation. Add a score-desk seat to a performance at the Met and turn your study into a full day of learning, listening, and experiencing opera.
 
All classes take place before a corresponding performance for each featured opera, and annotated piano-vocal scores are provided as part of the class ticket price, unless otherwise noted. Beginner-level ability to read music is recommended.
 
INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS: $40 class and materials only | $50 class and score desk seat for performance. 
Please note that score desk seats do not offer a view of the stage. All classes take place on Saturday mornings from 10–11:30AM
