Eugene Onegin Encore

Splendid. I laughed, cried and scratched my head... Magnificent music (although a little too loud in this theater) beautiful actors (opera singers no less!) great sets, lovely colors... Fun interviews and backstage peeps during intermissions. But I also wondered why the house lights were not turned on during the first intermission. A lot of senior people attempted to go to the rest rooms in total darkness, and I was expecting casualties. I have tickets for all the other Met in HD performances and even some of the encores I have already seen. One of the pleasures of my (old) age.

A superb performance in every way. The music and singing were superb. The staging was simply magnificent. We were taken in by the story, the passion and the performances. The host from the Met was wonderful as were the interviews during the intermissions. The intermissions were welcome as the opera was long. Not to be missed.

A great story, based on a great poem, told by a great composer, with a great cast at a great opera company. What's not to like?

Outstanding performance. Breathtaking and innovative interpretation. Anna Netrebko's perfect seamless voice was as divine as her acting skills. Her pianissimo in the last scene was fantastic - rich and full. The entire cast was flawless and superb.

The first two acts were great, but then a fire alarm went off and the cinema had to be evacuated. Hope this will not happen to you.
