Don Pasquale opera HD Live

This opera was fantastic. It was funny even while the music soared. Anna Netrebko's singing seems to be more stunning each time we see her. She was delightful and touching in this role. Her 3 male leads held their own with each other and thus the love duet, the trio and the quarter made me shiver. And the patter song with John Del Carlo and Mariuz blew me and the live audience away. We earned ourselves an encore in front of the closed curtain. How satisfying and fabulous. We are lucky to have such high quality performances available at such a reasonable cost. I have seen 3 N.Y. Met Operas this fall already and plan to see the remaining (?). In New York or even at our beloved MN Opera Co. I could not begin to afford Opera that often. Thanks for bringing these live broadcasts. They enrich my life. Dori

Most Definitely Worth a Try!

To all who have never been to the Opera but have always been curious, this is your ticket! Live in HD from NY's Met is FAB and, you don't have to dress to the nines and if you need to exit the theatre for any reason you can do so without disrupting the performance. You will have an up close and personal view of behind the scenes, enjoy interviews with performers during intermissions and expose yourself to one of the world's oldest art forms...Opera! Feels as if you are sitting on the stage with is fantastic! Hope you will broaden your artistic horizons and give this media a try...definitely worth the $25! I have read and heard so much about Anna Netrebko and was thrilled to finally witness her amazing talent first hand. Yes, all the hype that surrounds her is valid. Not only is she beautiful but very powerful!
