We all want the good guy to win, but let’s be honest: sometimes it’s more fun to watch the others. And how do you know who the good one even is? The Metropolitan Opera spotlights some of music’s greatest antiheroes—from the morally dubious to straight-up conniving—in Week 46 of the ongoing Nightly Met Streams Series.

The lineup continues January 25 with a free stream of Mozart’s Don Juan tale, Don Giovanni. Antics will ensue the following day with Rossini’s romp Le Comte Ory, with such titles as Faust, Rigoletto, and Macbeth on deck.

The free streams are available starting at 7:30 PM ET each night at for 23 hours each. Check out this week's complete schedule below.
