Live in HD from the Met is a wonderful way to see opera up close. The performance was outstanding.
The ticket purchasing process from Fandango worked just fine.
The only negative point is that the Met switched the starting time from 12:55PM to 12:00PM, but the Fandango web site continuously said 12:55. Happily, my daughter sent me an email she got from Met informing her that the performance time had been changed, so we went in time for the earlier starting time. Since she was singing in the chorus for this production, we would have been beyond stressed if we had missed an hour. The box office instructed us to always check the theatre's web site instead of the ticket web site in future.
All in all, we really appreciate the Live in HD program and the ability to pre-order tickets thru Fandango.
An outstanding performance. Renee Fleming is still "The Beautiful Voice" (to borrow from the name of
her CD). Johan Botha did a superb job of singing and acting on his return from a bout of illness. The look in his eye and quivering cheeks when enraged with jealousy showed how "into" the part he was - and these would not have been noticeable to the audience at the Met, as they sit too far back. Shows the benefit of seeing the opera at a theater. Falk Struckmann was wonderfully evil as Iago. Verdi's music is so powerful, as was the singing. The stage settings were very well done, and the backstage interviews during the intermissions were fascinating. Definitely a performance to see.
