It's great to be able to see The Metropolitan Opera and not have to travel to New York! You do
lose the grandeur of the opera house, but you gain some immediacy that live audiences don't get. 'Boris Godunov' is a huge opera. The chorus plays an integral part in making the opera work and rightly gets its own curtain call. I would have liked to have seen more full-stage shots to get a better idea of what the house audience was seeing; but that is a small quibble.
This HD encore 'broadcast' from the Metropolitan Opera was my first experience with 'Eugene
Onegin'. Although it may not rank as one of my favorite operas, the production was beautifully staged and sung. I'm looking forward to more of the 'encore' series this summer and hope that Santa Cruz may soon get on the schedule for the actual broadcasts.
