One of the best performances I have seen through Met in HD; the choice of singers/actors
was superb, staging unusual and allowing close-ups to bring great experience closer.

Great production with a wonderful cast. A joy to watch.

What a pleasure to be able to see an Opera from the Met. If you have never had the opportunity to see an Opera -- this is your opportunity.
The SETS were amazing --- only from the Met.
Carmen was strong and sexy. Don jose had beautiful moments in his aria and nice compliment to Carmen. Alot of very nice acting too.
There was alot of movement, dance and very sexy compared with all other Carmen's I have scene before. If I were there live for the performance - I wouldnt have been this close to the performers.
The music is familiar and intoxicating. Plus its nice to see some of the behind the scenes look at the set and musicians. Always love hearing the harpist along with other musicians in the third act (I think) in the Entrance. Never gets old.

we LOVED it- better than the actual opera - esp.with all the add-ons (backstage, closeups etc!

Excellent! Let's have more Operas! I thought the staging was beautiful, the singers were great actors and the voices world class. I hope to see more in the next season,
