Madama Butterfly was another magnificent Metropolitan Opera Live production. I had seen this production at the Met in New York back when it opened in 2006, and the MetOperaLive performance was even better than being there, in my opinion. As is typical of all these MetOperaLive telecasts, the set appears much darker than it does in real life, probably because the cameras used in Lincoln Center are just not sensitive enough (yet?) for the brightness of the lights in the opera house. The sound was excellent, as usual, and the backstage interviews during the intermission were much better than standing in line for a drink at the live performance. Two of these MetOperaLive productions (Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin and Bellini's I Puritani) are now available on Blu-ray DVDs for home viewing. Hopefully others will come soon because it will be great to see repeat performances. Thanks again for these live productions here in Naples FL.
