Seeing Maria Stuarda in HD was an experience which moved me as well as entertained and educated me.
I did read about the story before I got to the theater, so I was somewhat prepared for the sequence of events. However, the honesty of the singing and acting propelled the drama into an interactive mode.
This is a great way to experience opera and be so involved in the piece. The close-ups of the singers, the gorgeous costumes, the interviews with the performers and the local accessibility made this a great experience for me! I have seen many operas live, and I will continue to do so. However, I love the HD broadcasts where I can have the best seat in the house for a fraction of the cost and at my local theater!
Wow! This performance was special in every way. The quality of the singing was excellent - from
small roles to the leads. The chemistry between the leads was terrific and the camera work on them helped that.(My theater seat was far better than the 3rd tier in RAH!)The costuming was beautiful. "Masquerade" was a stunning visual experience. The setting (Royal Albert Hall) proved to be perfectly suitable for the lavish production with the aid of projections and the placement of the full orchestra behind the staging area.
I was moved, entertained, and impressed with the whole production. I hope a DVD of this performance will be forthcoming. I could watch this production again and again!
