Aida

It was my first time to see a live from the Met Performance at a movie theater, and I am forever hooked. It was a wonderful experience to see the expressions on the faces of the performers and to view the stage from so many perspectives. At intermission we were taken back stage to see the changing of the sets and also interviews of the key singers. I have been to the Met at Lincoln Center many times, but nothing could top this experience.

Liudmyla Monastryrska (Aida), new to the Met, is an amazing soprano and actress--a rising star. This opulent production is the best I've seen, and truly does Verdi's tragic spectacle justice. In addition to fine performances, beautiful costumes, sets and staging, the choreography and dancing was delightful. It entertains at every level, and yet is profoundly moving. Aida is a must see, so catch its Encore performance.

Outstanding performance, to say nothing of the production itself. The singing and acting were wonderful. I've seen several "Aida" productions and this was the very best!

1st time seeing the Met's Aida

although I love Verdi, oddly enough Aida isn't my favorite by any means (that would be a tie between Il Trovatore, La Traviata, and Otello, followed by Rigoletto,who knows why, they just work for me). I had only seen a local production which had nowhere near the resources of the Met and of course didn't have singers close to the caliber of the Met singers. the sets and performance are intense, and I think if I had been at an Imax, overwhelming. Alagna impressed me, I had only heard him in less dramatic roles (Nemorino, e.g.) I was very impressed with the soprano who played Aida, Liudmyla Monastyrsk. beautiful tone to her voice, powerful and a good actress. that she stood out in this cast says something about her talent. all in all I thought it was wonderful

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.
