Highlights of this unparalleled collection of opera performances include:

• More than 100 presentations from the Met’s award-winning "Live in HD" series of global cinema transmissions, featuring opera superstars Roberto Alagna, Natalie Dessay, Joyce DiDonato, Plácido Domingo, Renée Fleming, Juan Diego Flórez, Elīna Garanča, Jonas Kaufmann, Anna Netrebko, Deborah Voigt, and many more

I'm only giving the Met's app 3 out of 5 stars because of the lack of dark mode option. In addition to that, since the last update, the subtitles have gotten smaller, making it difficult to read on my Pixelbook. Nevertheless, I love the Met, the amazing selection of content, & above all else, the incredible artists from past to present! To the Dev's, get rid of the pink borders, put in dark mode as an option, & please, do something about those subtitles! Looking forward to the 2021/22 season!!!

The selection of operas is great (although I wish the audio quality was better on modern HD recorded operas). But the app is pretty bad. Every time I open it, it requires me to login (other apps know how to store credentials for a period of time). There is no way to send the app to background in order to keep listening to music while doing other things on my Android phone or tablet . The app stops playing, as soon as I send it to background. And the screen has to stay on for the same reason, which drains the battery.

This app does not seem to have Chromecast support, i.e., it's not Chromecast-enabled to allow for streaming to a television (hooked up to a sound system) without loss of video or audio quality. Who wants to watch an opera on a phone? The Berliner Philharmoniker figured out how to provide this feature for its Digital Concert Hall years ago. I hope the Met adds this very soon. If I'm wrong about this, I apologize.
