We were thrilled by seeing the HD presentation of this ballet! The cameras bring us up close and
personal so we got to see secrets and costumes and expressions and hear interviews with important dancers. All wonderful!
(The only negative is that we feel silly applauding in a movie theater when the performers can't hear us and the surrounding audience doesn't also feel comfortable clapping.)
Several solo and duet dances drew our appreciation and moved us to feel like applauding.
(Another criticism would be that I don't think these HD broadcasts are publicized enough - there should be bigger audiences wanting to come!)
We considered traveling into NYC during Thanksgiving while visiting CT but were saved time and money and effort by the Live in HD show here 5 minutes from our home near Syracuse NY.
This was a wonderful exhilarating experience! Though it was a stand-up concert the performers
were in full costume and the lighting and effects were awesome! The number of performers over all was awesome. Worth seeing again or later owning on DVD!
This was a HD Live broadcast of the Metropolitan Opera performance of Thais. It was excellent!!
Seeing HD Live is better than being there because you see from all angles, up close and personal, backstage, between scenes, interviews with the stars and designeres and instrumentalists, etc. The stadium theatre seats are comfortable and the sound is super..
The whole experience is wonderful -- execpt getting out of the parking garage on the Saturday before Christmas between snow storms!
We attended one HD live broadcast last year and hope to attend at least 2 or 3 more in 2009.
