This is the 4th Met HD I have seen in last several months, and each is better than the last. These are amazing in thier viuals, their sound, their operticv drama and thier acting. Eeveryone should go! It is an adult theme, thogh sophisticated kids would enjoy it.

I loved this movie of Il Trovatore! The main cast of singers--Sondra Ravanovsky, Marcelo Alvarez, Dmitri Hvorostovsky, and Delora Zanjic (sp?) were all fabulous! A wonderful production . . .

TROUBLE WITH THEATER; AUDIENCE OF 90% SENIORS, VOLUME ENOUGH FOR A ROCK CONCERT !! NOT NECESSARY, UNCOMFORTABLY LOUD!!!
SMALL AUDIENCE FOR RERUNS YET THEATER TEMP TOO LOW, AUDIENCE ALL WRAPPED IN OUTER GARMENTS TRYING TO KEEP WARM AGAIN UNCOMFORTABLE.
THEY FINALLY DID REMEMBER TO TURN THE LIGHTS BACK ON AT THE END AS PEOPLE WERE LEAVING CAN THIS REVIEW BE SENT TO THEATER MANAGEMENT?

If you love opera this is a must see from beginning to end. The entire production was wonderful, the sets, the voices, the acting were exquisite. I was only sorry when it ended because I couldn't get enough of it. I will see it again when next released.

The singing was great, the music was excellent, however the dying scene was over done. As I was leaving I heard a couple of people in conversation voicing what I was thinking, "I thought the woman was never going to die." Not one of my favorite operas.
