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.

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?

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 . . .

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.

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...
