While it cannot compare to being at a live opera, this is still a wonderful way to enjoy one of the great romantic operatic love stories ..This was a wonderful cast and a splendid conductor. While the interviews with the cast members and the conductor and the other Met company members were a great bonus. The behind the scenes glimpses were also something that most attendees at the theater do not see. Will look forward to other operas in this series.

The Met outdid itself with this new production of Eugene Onegin. The cast was amazing , costuming excellent. These opera singers can act! Any age would enjoy the music and acting.

This isn't a "movie." This is the Metropolitan Opera live in a fabulous production of Tchaikovsky's "Eugene Onegin."
Too bad there was a technical glich at the beginning that cut the sound; gave me a heart attack until it was fixed.
If you missed it, there's a rerun on Wednesday.

Went to the Opera, but due to technical difficulties didn't get to see / hear the Opera. Runner Runner, was OK but didn't quite fit the bill.

The singing, the acting, the pace of the evolution of the story and production were so exciting and well done, that my interest and enthusiasm never flagged, for even one minute. Despite some criticism of Peter Gelb's choice of this as the starting presentation of the season, I believe it was a brilliant choice, and the live audience thought so too with its standing ovation. Kudos to Mr. Gelb, as well, for bringing us The Met in HD!!!!
