I checked out some video clips on You.tube and instantly knew I wanted to see this opera. I was not dissapointed one bit. It was a full theatre which thrilled me. The entire production was so wonderful, and having Deborah Voight as the moderator was great, unlike the stilted Renee Fleming from an earlier transmission. I was swept up the minute the orchestra began to play and never lost interest . The singers were all beyond fantastic, Simon Keenlyside was so perfect as Prespero, I couldn't believe it when he told Voight that before each performance he actually had the remarkable body art done by a makeup artist. They showed a brief clip of this actual process. I thought Keenlyside was just magic and such an incredible voice. All the performers had perfect voices for their parts, Miranda was so beautiful with a voice to match, and Ariel peformed an almost impossible vocal part with such ease. I could go on forever, but won't. Just if you have a chance to see it, please attend.
