The show was outstanding, excellent for adults. Beautiful music, first class interpretation - unfortunately some of the transmission was of bad quality - interrupted several times by scratches on the tape and lack of sound...

Great voices and acting- while sound was not as good as this years productions, it still was a treat to behold - thanks for putting it on.

Marvelous and brilliant and thrilling. HOWEVER: the projectionist either cannot or does not control the intensity of the sound so in addition to being gigantic, this beloved opera was also delivered with ear-splitting intensity. If there is a way to set the sound level, caution the projectionist, opera afficianados would be a lot happier.

I don't know how this could possibly have been better. The performers were letter and pitch perfect. If you've never seen and opera and want to give it a try, Il Trovatore is one of the best to start with. The music is spectacular and the story is a typical opera story. I wish I could have seen it live in New York. In the meantime, this is the way to see great opera. Sluggo in California

Absolutely incredible singing. Verdi's score is very difficult and all the singers did justice and more to the score.
