La Cenerentola

There were technical problems with the presentation of this opera video. First, the image was remarkably dim. It looked like a rehearsal with the stage lights off. Even the spotlights on the lead singers barely registered. The problem might have been incorrect video settings during the video recording, but I doubt that. It's more likely that the projection equipment used at Century Theater in San Francisco could not produce a bright enough image. After I complained about the situation, a technician made adjustments at intermission that made the image slightly brighter but also more washed out. The Century Theater should correct this problem and make a public announcement that they have done so. I can't sit through another opera video that looks this bad. In addition to the dim image, the sound was sub-par. At this theater, the sound has been disappointing for all the Met-at-the-Movies events I have attended. There is no dimensionality to the sound, unlike a good home stereo.

A "tour de force." The opera tells the Cinderella story, of course, with the wonderful score by Rossini and extraordinary singers who justly received standing ovations like in no other opera we have seen. 5 Stars!!!!!!

Having never previously seen this opera, I was curious as to what to expect. It exceeding my fondest expectations, as it was a great combination of singing, staging and acting by plausible-looking singers.

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.
