La Cenerentola encore

Another entertaining evening from the Met. The cast was exceptional in this difficult Rossini opera. Both the singing and the comical acting were superb. In the theatre everyone seemed of a like opinion.

Have seen many of the Met in HD operas; most, in fact. I've enjoyed them all a great deal, and have been a major Rossini fan heretofore. I thought Giacomo came a cropper in this production, however, which was so drear I hardly know where to begin. The stage direction was so limp and unfocused as to be practically non-existent. For example, the choral groupings had no sense of placement: "some of you stand here, you others stand over there." Sets, especially in the second act, were so unatrractive, dark, and cumbersome I had no idea what they were. The two sisters were vocally strident and overacted to a fare-thee-well. As for the leads, Ms DiDonato sounded ocasionally forced, I thought, whereas senor Florez, IMHO, proved once again he can vocally do no wrong. And BRAVO once more to Peter Gelb !

Not my favorite Opera. but the Met production s are stunning. I wish we could get seat assignments, so we don't have to show up so ridiculously early for decent seats.

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".
