Eugene Onegin

This encore production of a live in HD opera broadcast from the Metropolitan Opera's 2007 season showed some of the creakiness of the early broadcasts, particularly in the camera work. The singing (and acting) were superb, however. The first act was a bit slow, with a lot of exposition, and the staging (the country house represented by a bare stage with the floor carpeted by fallen leaves) was imaginative but didn't quite work--specially when Tatiana's bed was plonked down in the middle of the leaves. Acts II and III were splendid, though, partly because the drama of the stoy picked up, and the settings (still with minimal stagiing but with gorgeous costumes) were now in Russian high society. Altogether a memorable and moving experience.

Typical operatic tragic love story. Magical singers and singers. Unlike most previous Met HD films, this one eliminated all the intermissions, making for an intense evening - following the story and absorbing the gorgeous music. The sets were pathetic and seemed strangely anachronistic - very stark and moderrn while all the costumes were 19th century. Wait until you see this handsome baritone - Eugene Onegin - to die for.!!!
