Having seen a not so great live performance at the Met on January 1st, this was really a much better performance from the three sopranos and the bass. I understand that they all
were fighting some sort of "bug". Unfortunately the sound system is style in need of work as there was distortion but much less from the first HD performances in other cinemas. Hope that all will be remedied this year. Seeing the opera locally is really wonderful! Not many can
afford a seat at the Met!
