Faust

Faust was fabulous. I wish I could say the same for the Hollywood 20 in Sarasota, FL. They can't turn the lights on and off at the right times, the sound is not correct, they have left the audience sitting in the dark for well over 15 minutes when there was something wrong with the picture and they didn't know it until someone had a flashlight and left the theater to tell them. Every showing they have made a mistake.

Fenway Boston Stadium Cinema is dreadful

Met in HD series is great, but the Fenway Boston Stadium Cinema is a horrible place to see it. Projectors not bright enough to illuminate the screen; sounds of shoot-em-up movies coming through the walls, nobody bothers to turn down the lights after intermission, and the parking fee is $13 after validation.

A great newproduction. Excellent. The arias were beautiful, and the cast was superb. Several well known arias made it most memorable. Thank you for presenting these encore operas. They are wonderful and easier than the Saturday mornings.

NOT SO HD

By rwrx

The voices and sets were excellent in this over-long opera. The Regal Shadowood in Boca Florida can't compare with Cinemax in Boynton Beach. Neither the picture nor the sound were HD, the lights remained on until I got up and reminded them. Screen was too small to appreciate the opera and we will not go there again.

The singing of the principals was superb. as dramatically and musically elegant as anything I have head. The production was silly. Staging this medieval morality play in the recent past is stupid and cumbersome. Fortunately, The beauty of the music won out.
