La Boheme encore II

By cedwalter

The opera was magnificant, the singing and acting superb. It was one of the best HD presentations of the the two years they have been produced. My only complaint was the inclusion of a second 15 minute intermission. It should have been left on the cutting room floor.

La Boheme Encore II

Normally I enjoy the live HD broadcasts from the Met, but this one gave me a splitting headache. Sitting in the forward third of the theater (the only seats available) I felt overwhelmed by over-amplified, over-magnified close-ups of sweating singers who seemed to be lip-synching. This overacted, overdone video production was so insufferable, I had to leave after the first act.

Boheme: timeless perfection

The performance was excellent. I have seen the Zeffirelli production several times and am always deeply touched by it, especially Act III. Gheorghiu and Vargas were sublime and the supporting cast as well as the conducting were also excellent. The Met orchestra is unbeatable. We had tickets to see the simulcast in HD in April, but had to give our tickets to friends. This was their introduction to opera and they loved it. I was delighted that Encore II was made available and purchased tickets immediately. My wife and I were very happy that we made the choice to travel 100+ miles roundtrip to see it even though we heard the live broadcast on Sirius. We attended eight live performances at the Met this season as well as several in HD. We plan to continue to see live opera (nothing like it), but plan to add many more HD theater presentations. We hope that they become available at the new IMax theater being constructed soon in our home town of Reading, PA.

It was excellent. I only wish the intermissions were much shorter - 15-20 minutes between acts was too much. I'm very pleased this theatre shows The Met in HD - its incredible and very affordable. Plan on seeing many more.
