I saw Aida at Willowbrook Mall in Wayne. The acoustics were terrible and HD picture very poor. Opera music was overpowered by the music in adjacent theater. Do not recommend this theater.

Ukrainean Liudmyla Monastyrska sings the part of Aida. She has amazing power and vocal control and poignancy. The Met sets for Aida are so very impressive. I also enjoyed the videos showing what happens backstage during the intermissions and seeing both close-ups and aerial views, something I wouldn't see if I were actually at the Met.

Anyone who loves this Verdi Opera would thoroughly enjoy this MetOpera. The Ukranian lead singing the role of Aida was spectacular.

The opera itself was great. However, the experience was marred by a bunch of interviews asking stupid superficial questions before and during the performance. I understand that they needed to do something during intermissions BUT they ran the interviews and then STILL ran the intermissions. I will not see one of these again as long as they have these interviews. It is very annoying. Just do in the intermission set up and cut out the interviews

Since it's a re-run and not a live performance, I'd suggest editing the intermissions to make the film shorter.
