La Cenerentola--no encore for sound

The first part of this was terrible. It wasn't due to the performers. It was the sound. Too low. The music and the voices were too muted to enjoy. First time this has happened at this theater. I would hope someone would monitor the beginning to make sure all s working as it should. Also, the setting was too dark. This is the first encore performance I have seen. It hasn't been a problem with the live HD performances. I wonder if this problem is standard with encore performances. From the reviews I've read, it also happened at other theaters, so it couldn't have been the fault of the theaters. They are not totally off the hook, however. After some of us complained at the first break, the sound quality improved tremendously. Almost, too much.

Very much; delightful voices, acting and performances, in addition to the singing brought just the right amount of comedy into the opera. I encourage everyone who loves opera to attend as many as possible.

Once again, the Met scores a hit with a great cast in this Rossini comic opera.

very much this version of cinderella. the principal artists were terrific and in addition to their singing brought the right amount of comedy into the opera. the metropolitan opera is always wondeful to hear and see.
