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!

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!

A GREAT ENDING TO A MARVELOUS SEASON OF TWELVE FABULOUS PRODUCTIONS. AS A NON-PROFESSIONAL THEATRE DESIGNER & DIRECTOR I HAVE BEEN COMPLETELY SATISFIED WITH ALL TWELVE ESPECIALLY THE NEW PRODUCTIONS. "CESARE" WAS AN AMAZING PRESENTATION. DESSAY WAS WONDERFUL AS CLOPATRA AND DANIELS WAS HER EQUAL. ALL THE OTHERS WERE OUTSTANDING ALSO. IT WAS THE DIRECTION AND CONDUCTING THAT MADE THIS SUCH A MARVELOUS THEATRICAL EXPERIENCE. THE INTERVIEWS ADDED IMMENSELY TO THE ENJOYMENT OF THIS .EVENING'S GREATNESS. I AM PLANNING ON CONTINUING THROUGH THE SUMMER ENCORES AS WELL AS THE 2013-14 SEASON AS ANNOUNCED.
