The Met just gets better and better, and with its Live in HD series is indeed our national opera house. Saturday's 2010 debut with Das Rheingold was superb with an innovative set that put a 21st century label on this 19th century opera, and a top notch cast to bring it to life. Bryn Terfel was excellent in his first go at Wotan, and Eric Owens as Alberich carried the show. The satellite transmission was excellent throughout Altogether a spendid show that will keep me rreturning.
