Met Opera La Cenerentola

Nothing could be better than seeing both the orchestra musicians and the opera singers in close up as they create story and music. Better yet is seeing the scene changes between acts, hearing interviews with the principal singers and with the conductor. It was a perfect night at the opera.

What a marvelous performance and how nice to see it even though we couldn't be there for the Saturday matinee. Catching it on film as an "encore performance" on Wednesday evening following the event was just as good as being there.

MY HUSBAND AND I LOVED IT. IT WAS A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT SLANT ON THE OLD TALE BUT WAS A GREAT SPOOF WITH THE SAME MORAL. ACTING & VOICES WERE SUPERB & PEOPLE IN OUR AUDIENCE APPLAUDED AS THOUGH WE WERE ACTUALLY SITTING AT "THE MET".

Too bad the "Oh No" ratings lack comments since they're definitely skewing the overall rating... While it would have been great to sit in the Met for the performance, this first experience with an HD broadcast was fine. The singers were wonderful: Elina is enchanting and has a great voice, "Dandini" is an awesome bass and "The Prince" showed in the second act that he has chops. The only detractions came from the Regal theatre venue. They kept their usual commercial pre-show babble going instead of feeding the Met's sound - it would have made the experience more realistic. They handed out the opera synopsis about five minutes into the show - way too late to read it; thankfully we'd prepped ourselves and our two young guests. The worst: running a bass-heavy action flik (Terminator 4?) right next door - the booms interferred with the opera's sound at key moments. Some education of the staff is definitely needed. At $18 a ticket, theatre mgmt should pay more attention to the details.
