Wonderful experience

All the grandeur and spectacle of opera at the Met in the comfort of a local movie theater. Like having the best seats in the house, with a better view of everything. Loved the commentary during act changes. I'm looking into getting a field trip to a future show to introduce my high school students to opera.

The Metropolitan Opera: Aida

By pippop

An outstanding production of Aida. Seeing it live via simulcast was a special treat. The music, the orchestra, the singers, the dancers, the staging were all a feast to behold. The backstage interviews with the cast after each act were especially informative and entertaining. The sub titles enabled us to understand the entire story. This is a love story for all time. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

The Met has fine-tuned its LIVE in HD production to a excellent degree. To attend this LIVE in HD performance of "Aida" was 4 hours of pure quality entertainment. The tolal experience is far superior to that which those attending in person in New York City at the Met. To add frosting to the cake: the $$ value is unbelievable!

Aida-MET Broadcast

Written January 31, 2015
Outstanding cast! The cast is reminiscent of the old MET when it had the best voices in the world singing. The performance was both spectacular and very personal. The spectacular in the Triumphal scene, the personal when we saw Olga Borodina as Amneris shed a tear.

Wonderful voices and music! Again volume a too high, so vioces distorted. At 3rd Avenue nd 11th Street, they MUST remember to turn off overhead lights before the Opera begins, and after the intermissions! Katheine Manisco.
