Where has Liudmilla Monastyrska been? She is WONDERFUL! What a voice. I want to see her again -- often.

And I have to admit that I had my doubts about Roberto Alagna as Radames, but he was magnificent also. If they hadn't started scheduling the Live in HD broadcasts so late in the operas' run (most likely because they're afraid of canibalizing ticket sales in the house), I would travel to New York to see it in person (and pay the $250-380 a seat to get close). And I've seen (and paid for) Aida at the Met before, and I'd still go after seeing this performance.
