This is the second Met opera which I have seen in a theater, the other being last season's new production of Rigoletto.
The cast of this opera were simply superb. I have heard the music on cd's previously, but this was the first time I have seen the work. What a tear-jerker!
My only regret is that there was probably nobody in the audience below the age of 60. Young folks don't know what they are missing.

thought it was fair. am familiar with the opera and the music. Thought so much close up filming was distracting as i didn't care for the principal sopranos portrayal of Tatiana. But then acting is not the primary talent of opera stars. Somehow didn't get any of the feeling of being at the Met either.

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!

The amazing cast could only yield a magnificent performance. Great voices, great acting. The sets were a bit off in terms of what is expected from the Met. I understand the limitations of a compromised budget, but I expected better. Otherwise, I truly enjoyed the performance and felt compelled to visit NYC to see it live.

Eugene Onegin was beautifully done. The voices, the sets, the drama, and the music all made this opera worth seeing over and over. Bravo to everyone who contributed to the making of this opera!
