It was absolutely fabulous. I'd see it again over and over. What lovely music and singing. The only problem was that there was no intermission between 6:30 and 8:50, a lot for seniors who were sitting in the audience. But we were all enchanted

If you want opera at its best, which often means, insanely tuneful, this is a wonderful introduction.

MetOpera Simulcasts! Lucia

It was great! BUT the soundtrack from the action movie next door boomed thru the walls. AND it started early. AND they didn't turn the lights off for a good 15 mins. BUT that didn't diminish a beautiful experience.

Fine Entertainment

The Met has taken Donizetti's soap-opera plot and thin characters, fleshed them out with wonderful voices, great direction, staging, costumes and makeup, and given us a fine evening of entertainment. Anna Netrebko (Lucia) is even a better actress than she is a singer (and her singing is wonderful). The orchestra never disappoints, and the harp solo was perfection, including the beautiful way it was filmed. Kudos to the Metropolitan Opera and this fine Encore series.

A excellent interpretation of Lucia

The performance of Lucia Di Lammermoor was very good. The setting was great and the performance was superb. I definitely like the ending because customarily Lucia is finished after her famous death scene but this new production brings her back as backdrop to the death scene of Edgardo. The performance made you feel like you were at the Met and in a front seat. Thank you for offering the performance.
