Eugene Onegin - Just superb!

Peter Gelb is a geniuis. Because of him so many people are able to enjoy the Met Opera which was before accessible to only a few. Onegin was fantastic -- Anna Netrebko and Mariusz Kwiecien were amazing. What a sad but beautiful opera. Enjoyed every minute of it even the intermissions!

The Met did it again!

It is hard to imagine a more perfect Onegin than the one presented yesterday by the MET in HD, no less. Dream cast: Netrebko, Kwiecien, and Beczala. And all brought together by the wonderful conducting of Gergiev. The time simply flew by and it was over all to soon. Hopefully the rest of the HD season will measure up to this performance. I hope it will be released on DVD.

Superbe performance both musically vocalyand technically, surpass by far live stage performance. The photographic capabilities in the HD wide screen presentation make it all worth while.

Great Singing, but a Real Snoozer

Four hours is a long time to sit through any opera, but this one used nearly half of the time for intermissions and scene changes. The singing and acting were first-rate, but the story is pretty thin, and the whole thing just takes forever.

What a treat!

Seeing the operas in HD on the big screen is amazing. Unless you are in the first 10 rows of the Met, you can't get the sense of the acting involved that you can on the screen. Yes, it is different than seeing a live performance. However, you get to see facial expressions and an extra bonus: the backstage happenings during intermissions (fascinating). No it is not the same as being in an opera house but it it thoroughly enjoyable. If you can't get to a live opera, this is a wonderful alternative.
