It is a shame that the technology got in the way of the performance. The video suffered from so many 3D artifacts that it was easier to watch without the glasses.

I am a frequent viewer of the Opera at the Met HD performances. The event should have been shot in HD and not 3D.

Despite the 3D issues, the performance itself was awesome. These are some of the world's greatest ballet artists and it was apparent. The lead ballerina is immensely talented as was the dancer portraying the court jester.

This is one of the great ballets performed on one of the world's historic stages.
