Having seen this production at last 5 times at the Met Opera House, I was able to recreate the massive sets in my mind as I listened to the glorious music and watched a fine cast. If one has not seen it in person, it cannot be fully appreciated on screen. However, the score , principal singers and Met Chorus and dancers were more than enough to satisfy even the newest of opera goers. Roberto Alagna's performance was somewhat uneven but nevertheless effective. Always a treat to see and hear a Met debut and this Aida will surely take the opera world by storm. I never get tired of seeing this quintessential production of Aida.

Loved the opera production. Also enjoyed the 'bonus' backstage interviews conducted by the diva Renee Fleming.

the producer's handling of the camera angles was horrible and detracted from many scenes of the opera especially use of the overhead camera
