- PBS LearningMedia resources: Met Education has partnered with PBS to curate two educational opera collections. The first collection focuses on operatic adaptations of Shakespeare and includes Verdi’s Macbeth, Verdi’s Otello, and Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette. The second collection considers how opera composers have interpreted real-life historical events and features John Adams’s Doctor Atomic, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly, and Puccini’s La Fanciulla del West. Each of these six operas can be streamed in its entirety from the PBS website and comes equipped with a ready-to-use educational activity.
