This is the best broadcast opera I've seen in the last three years of attending the Met Opera HD productions. An absolute must-see/hear. Anna Netrebko, Mariusz K., & Piotr B, and the entire cast were excellent. I'd attend a rebroadcast in a heartbeat. Thank you, Met, for this amazing production!

The very best opera I've EVER attended either at the Met or at HD. Mariusz Kwiecich & Anna Netrebkov are magnificent as is Piotr Beczala! Pushkin and Tchaikovsky are a perfect match.
The acting was the best I've ever seen in an opera, Tatiana and Onegin were believable and brought tears a number of times. The music is so beautiful & is a perfect match for the emotions Pushkin creates. Onegin is such a love/hate hero and Tatiana is convincing as a young, naïve girl swooning over her first love and then as a strong, sophisticated woman.
It was a totally enjoyable afternoon.

One of the best operas we've ever seen. Great story, great acting and great singing. Even if you're not an opera buff, you'll love this one. Watch for it to come again!!

The Metropolitan Opera is stunning, I love the HD shows, it's like you are right there in New York in the audience! It started at 1:00 and I didn't leave the theater until 5:00, just wish you could fast forward through the Intermissions, 2 Intermissions are too many!

Great performance. Watching this opera from in a movie theater with behind the scene interviews, change of decor, etc., makes it very special. What a wonderful way for everybody to access culture! Bravo!
