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.

MET HD - Carmen

I think that these productions are great - not quite the same as being in the Met itself, but not far off. You can also get very close to the action. I really enjoyed it and Carmen is a wonderful opera.

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 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

Splendid production!! The camera captured the various emotions that could not be seen as well by the Met audience. The acting and singing made for a memorable evening. We wish we could experience it again tonight.
