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.

This is a must go if you are an opera fan. This was our first experience with The Metropolitan Opera Live-HD. One would expect the sets and music to be great, but what makes the theater experience in some ways better than seeing it at the Met is the chance to hear interviews with the lead singers, the maestro, and key production staff. The closeup shots of the stars provide an intimacy not possible even you were in the front row of the Met. The intermissions are long, but it's fascinating to observe backstage as the crews move massive sets in place between acts. And what better opera to see for our initiation than AIDA! Liudmyla Monastyrska in the title role was simply magnificent in her Met debut. She has a great future ahead of her.

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.

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.
