One of the bigger productions this season, Aida is absolutely fantastic! The voices are glorious and Aida, a virtual unknown, is divine. So glad I watched this!

The live broadcast of Aida was amazing! The actors were fabulous. I really enjoyed seeing the behind the scenes work between acts. It was fascinating to see how much work goes into the production.

If you want to see pageantry at its peak visit a performance of Aida by the Metropolitan Opera Company. Superb singing, spectacular visionary vistas, comfortable as well as best seats in the house. Don't miss any HD broadcasts from the Met that are available in your locality at local theaters. What a treat and at an unbelievable price!!!

This was an amazing experience. To get to experience a MET performance without traveling to NYC is a great opportunity that shouldn't be passed up. I hope broadway takes a hint and starts showing off too. LOVED IT!

I was afraid it was going to be 4 hours long but actually I did not notice the passing of time. It was mi first time attending the Met Opera and was worth the 22 dollars I spent. You can see the characters so close much more than if you would be there at the Met in person. The interviewing of the cast during the intermission time was a big plus too. The production itself was fantastic, the size, the number of people, it looks the folks that put it together thought about every single detail and did it in a very professional way. the theme itself was I guess very characteristically italian and very romantic and at the end love prevails in a way that I was not expecting otherwise it would have been a greek tragedy.
