After being nudged by a friend to attend Aida, I did so. Oh my gosh! I've since thanked him profusely. This was a wonderful experience, both in the visual presentation and the musical production. Such voices are surely difficult to match. Not anticipating the subtitles provided, I was thrilled to find them as they made the actions on stage so clear and meaningful. Obviously, I'm not qualified to make comparisons as this was my first operatic experience. I do know that it won't be my last.

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!

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.

It was a wonderful experience! Could see the actions, expressions, etc. up close. Much better seats than I could ever afford at the met-plus we got to see backstage. I loved it and am looking forward to the next time!
