I loved the production. I wish the Metropolitan would or could do more advertising of these live matinee presentations.

The Metropolitan Opera broadcast in HD makes opera enjoyable, even for those who wouldn't normally set foot in an opera house.

Aida

The movie iitself ie cinematography was excellent and Met production (sets etc ) was excellent. The 3 leads were not up to Met standards. Voices of the male ;lead was shrill and not well modulated and at times flat - particularly the high notes. Aida was not well modulated and both high and low notes were often off key. Amnaris was grim and often rough notes (she had played this role 250 times and it was frayed). They also were much, much overweight. The secondary singers were on the whole much better than the leads. I was disappointed.
