CARMEN at Loew's Kips Bay

By Bill_Hood

The Met's 2010 CARMEN with the original cast may have brought together the greatest production and the greatest singers alive for their roles in one astounding musical experience. It is a triumph and I was eager to see it for the third time in Live in HD from the Met. As usual, the Met's digital HD recording was fabulous, revealing aspects of the score and the acting that no one could have seen live in the theater. The problem -- and it was a huge problem -- is the sound system in Theater 5 at Loew's Kips Bay. It would have been bad under any circumstances, but in light of this CARMEN it was a disaster and a sacrilege. The sound was too bright and too loud; the highest pitches rattled the speakers; the lower registers were muffled; and the voices were so far in front of the orchestra as to betray entirely Bizet's dazzling interchange of musical ideas. Compare the sound at the Ziegfield on West 53rd St and you'll hear what I mean. Really disgraceful.

the Met HD Carmen

This opera with my favorite tenor, Roberto Alagna, was terrific. Loved the action, fast paced story line. Carmen didn't have those show stopper duets, but it was still wonderfully preformed. If your an Opera fun, I say GO

The best I have ever seen. Just wish we were in NY to see it! But am grateful for it to be shown on a theater screen.
