The Metropolitan Opera was founded in 1883, with its first opera house built on Broadway and 39th Street. One-hundred-twenty-three years after its formation, the Metropolitan entered the digital world with its 2006 release of The Met: Live in HD. This digital transmission product now reaches 70 countries with live high definition performances. Later, in 2008, the Metropolitan released Met Opera on Demand. This online source, to which the Library now subscribes, includes 550 opera performances, some being varying productions of the same work. Library users can follow the link for Met Opera on Demand to access the resource.
