I had missed the original broadcast in 2010 and was looking forward to seeing this new (to me) production and it didn't disappoint. The singing & acting were both first rate and the orchestra, as always, was magnificent

Superb!!!!! The only complaint hat I have about your opera productions, is the difficulty in finding data for specific theatres, where various operas are shown. Even your customer service desk cannot help. Listing of Broadway Shows availability also would be VERY helpful.

transmission froze

I went to see the Encore for "Carmen" and, during the 3rd Act, the transmission froze and at least 30 to 45 minutes were cut oft the original play. Hadn't I seen it before, I would have been lost. Our theater had no weather issues that day, and Carmen was not featured just once when it went on at The Met. I think that transmissions should be recorded with efficiency. If MET performances do not suffer regardless of the weather outside, they could have chosen a better recording.

If you like opera and Bizet's Carmen in particular you will love this HD "broadcast." The two stars are elegant and passionate and have fine voices. Both can act as well as sing. One small problem: the sound was just a millisecond or five behind the video. Not too too annoying but it needs fixing to be as good as the performances and productions themselves.
