Baroque opera may not be for everyone. I believe that this was the first Handel opera I have ever seen in its entirety but will not the the last! I have been a subsciber to the Met for many years until retirement and moving but, back then, no Handel. What a shame.
World class singers - all, no weak links.
Staging was wonderful and the first intermission showed how it works to do all the changes from act to act - fascinating.
No, not the same as seeing int live, but worth it to see how it is done. Now, to plan another trip to NYC>
