It does a good job at letting you watch the operas you’d like, but the amount of glitches that occur with the subtitles drive me insane. Also, I can’t favorite any of the operas I’ve watched. Sometimes they won’t even play. So if you have the patience and passion, it’s a decent app. If not, don’t download.

The last thing The Met needs is an expensive app that doesn’t work, but here we are. I wanted to see Der Fliegende Hollander from March 2020 in the worst way and it final appeared in streaming. I signed up for a full year of On Demand. Now it doesn’t recognize I am a full subscriber on iPad or iPhone. Sometimes it works. I have deleted and re-added. Contacted Apple who confirms I am all set. So it’s a serious disconnect.

I have just started using the app, but I would say, at a minimum, the subtitles should be fixed. In the Android app, you can select your colors for the subtitles, which makes them more readable, because there is greater contrast between the words and their background. I am submitting some of the recent reviews to Peter Gelb himself. Maybe then the app will be fixed.

Or you include the original language libretto subtitles.
