This is one of the Mozart operas that is not performed often and one of the few operas that has a
happy ending. It is based in Rome under Tito's rule who was a forgiving man; thus the title of "clemency". The entire cast was excellent and singing supurb. Kate Lindsey is such a superb young performer playing Annio, one of the trouser roles. Elina Garancahe plays the other trouser role as Seto, his (her) friend and she stole the show with her voice and acting. The encore performance or a live performance at the Met are the only options to see this one. Although I read it is being broadcast on Sirius radio on Dec 6.

The Met continues to provide thrilling performances on HD Live. The Rosen Cavalier was exceptional
in every way -- beautiful singing, acting and staging. Renww Flemming both sings and looks beautiful in her role as sthe maturing woman who reluckantly gives up her young lover. Susan Graham as Octavian absolutely owns this role. She sings each note with passion and switches gender roles with ease through the long opra. If you missed the HD boardcast, take in the encore.
