Thoroughly enjoyed the opera (The Metropolitan Opera Live HD). If anyone is an opera lover this is the way to go. It is reasonable and the view cannot be beat. I have been going to these live in HD performances for about 3 years. Cannot miss with this option.

Wonderful except you could hear loud booming and base sounds from the theatre next to where Aida was being shown. Very distracting during the prelude. Denver , 500 16th St . AMC.

With an outstanding cast, a visually brilliant production and some of the finest music that Giuseppe Verdk wrote, this was a terrific performance. Alagna's natural voice, Monastyrska's moving reading of the role and Borodina's top quality singing all made it a great show.

Beautiful production. Excellent cast. Great camera work. Intermission features were very interesting.

Where has Liudmilla Monastyrska been? She is WONDERFUL! What a voice. I want to see her again -- often.
And I have to admit that I had my doubts about Roberto Alagna as Radames, but he was magnificent also. If they hadn't started scheduling the Live in HD broadcasts so late in the operas' run (most likely because they're afraid of canibalizing ticket sales in the house), I would travel to New York to see it in person (and pay the $250-380 a seat to get close). And I've seen (and paid for) Aida at the Met before, and I'd still go after seeing this performance.
