carmen a review

i saw the live hd and then saw it twice more. your site states 3 hours .but it ran for 3:36 minutes. the reason was the constant repeitition of your ads.people were complaining and i went to see the manager. i realize this may not be under your control but i am sure you have influence. when i say ads i mean fanthom ads. i know you are fandango but there must be some tie in. if this is not under your jurisdiction,then please forward. \ THE PEOPLE WERE EXTREMELY IRATE AND SOME WISHED THEIR MONEY BACK. YOU DO PROVIDE A GOOD SERVICE,SO PERHAPS YOU CAN DO SOMETHING. THANK YOU. P.S obviously i enjoyed the opera and convinced 12 people to go.

I saw this production for a second time after 3 years. I am still amazed at the versatility of talent. The acting ,singing ,dancing and music were simply incredible. Such a seductive Carmen! The work that must have gone into this achievement is mind boggling.

A wonderful passionate Carmen has come to life under the auspices of the Metropolitan Opera. It is in my opinion a marvelous do not miss occasion to see Carmen as it should always be done. Thanks to the stars and Metropolitan Opera. Well done.

Brilliantly done, especially the role of Carmen by mezzo Elina Garanca. I think I will purchase the DVD of this performance. Picture and sound are splendid.

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
