I attended the Hi Def showing of Lucia di Lammermoor at the Cinebistro in Vail, CO yesterday.
It was an extraordinary experience. To be able to sit in a small, luxurious theatre and watch this magnificent production live from the Metropolitan opera was a real treat. The voices were incredible, the "behind-the-scenes" interviews were very informative and very interesting. What a wonderful way to bring opera to the masses. My only wish would be that we could find a way to expose our younger generation to this magnificent music, to the drama of the story and to these gorgeous voices so that they might learn what real singing sounds like and that opera will have a future. This was a real treasure!
