Spectacular. The Ukranian singer of Aida was performing her debut with the Met and did so
brilliantly. The "cast of thousands" was well beyond impressive. This rendition of Aida at the Met was the best I've seen out of probably 10. Were Verdi alive today, he would have shouted "bravo."
Andrew Lloyd Webber et al outdid themselves with this one. Being a huge fan of ALW shows and
having seen all of them, several on Broadway, this is the very best effort to date. I do not understand why it bombed in London, but the Australians did justice to it. Even though the movie of the live production is outstanding, I certainly hope it makes it to the United States soon as nothing ever beats seeing a show on stage. If you have an opportunity to see this film, DO NOT MISS IT. If you have any appreciation at all of musical theater, this show will amaze you, although I would not take small children to see it. The music, of course, is outstanding, as is the original story, with bits of the original "Phantom" coming through.
