Giulio Cesare

An amazing Metropolitan Opera production, full of humor, gorgeous music and dancing. It's the kind of production even non-opera buffs can appreciate. Natalie Dessay's performance is stunning and riveting. The superb staging brings it all to life. I loved it!

Giulio Cesare in HD Encore

I liked at a lot, but it was too long! We didn't get out until 11:30 PM. I don't like to take the subway this late! At previous times, at this movie, they let us in at 5:30, one hour before the curtain but this time, they showed a movie in that auditorium and they let us in so late, that I could not go to the bathroom. The last time, I took my seat (which is what I prefer), then went to the bathroom!! I will not attend an opera in HD at this movie again!!!!

One of the top 5 operas I have ever seen (and I've seen a LOT of operas)j. Fantastic cast, and staging, and of course, Handel's music. Without exception the voices were superb...but equally, the creative staging was outstanding. There was real character development also. Not to be missed!

I am a big fan of the Met HD offerings and was especially looking forward to this one, as the reviews of the in person performance at the Met were very positive. Only disappointment with the HD this time was the quality of the sound ...not sure if this was a problem with the transmission (an encore showing or with the reception at the local theater). Anyway, the voices sounded somewhat distorted,. Nonetheless I would recommend as a performance worth viewing!
