Too bad for those who did not soak in the performance!

This was one of the best productions of Carmen that I've ever seen. The singing, the acting, everything was first-rate. I wanted it to start over so I could see it again. Loved it!

This Met HD Encore was supposed to begin at 7:00. Nothing happened until 7:15, then there was a set of previews for Broadway shows, then there were the previews for all of the other Met Encores for this summer which played in a loop 4x (included a bunch of fathomevent ads, etc 4x). Then there was a preview of the Met HD 2013-2014 season (I may have this backward as the mind began to boggle after a while). The upshot was that the actual opera I came to see did not begin until between7:40 -7:45. Were there technical difficulties? No mention was made of that. Was this done on purpose? If so, then I'll not attend again - even though I like going to the opera at these HD performances. I can understand a small amount of preface to the performance you are paying to see, but this was way out of line. If I can't be assured that the performance will start within 10 to 15 minutes of the advertised time then I am out of your customer group.Was going to go next week but will pass on it due to this.

Best performance of CARMEN ever. The volume in theatre was painfully loud and after
a discussion with the manager...that was corrected quickly...then we all enjoyed the opera.
I would encourage fans to bring friends who have never seen or heard a performance
from the Met. It is such a spectacular event I almost feel sorry for those who have not
given it a try.
