the Met opera HD Broadcast of "La Sonnambula" iwas a thrilling experience overall. the singing and acting were both superb, especially that of Natalie Dessay, Jennifer Black, and Juan Diege Florez. I did not like the sraging; the fact of "modernizing" a Bel Canto opera. The way tthat it was set up to be an opera about an opera company doing an opera was cleaver, but not very originian. I'd have preferred it to be staged traditionally, but I still enjoyed it thouroughly, and would recommend it.
