This was my first experience with seeing the Met in HD. Now I am mad that I've missed all the previous offerings. The production was visually stunning and I think the framing of the shots added to the enjoyment of the opera. The sound and picture quality was excellent. The only down side was that the sound was too loud for the first act, but the theater adjusted the volume for the rest of the show. I think this is an wonderful opportunity for anyone who love opera to experience a production at the Met.
