Opera was Awesome, Experience was not!

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.

It was a fabulous production. I have seen many Carmens ; this was by far the best.The acting was marvelous. This was a real opera done right from the start.

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.

I loved it from start to finish. The harmony of voices and instruments filled my heart with joy and kept me interested in all four chapters of this classical masterpiece. I was amazed with how many people participated in the production, all contributing with their sensational voices and dramatic acting. Watch it with subtitles to be immeresed in the drama that beautiful Carmen creates. Enjoy and by all means fall in love with Carmen. Ignore the warnings, hehe.
