As always, the Met HD broadcasts are superb. Mozart's last opera, La Clemenza di Tito, was performed in a wonderful production broadcast live.
However, the sound in the smaller theatre at UA Greenwood Village was set a a very low volume level, and the quality of sound was dreadful. You cannot use the same kind of sound for Met broadcasts that you use for Wreck-It Ralph.
If UA Greenwood Village is going to charge $22-24 for these productions, they should invest in a good sound system or use their larger theatre for Met broadcasts, which actually has decent sound.
I want my money back. Not for the production, but for the sub-par sound quality. Shame on you, UA Greenwood Village.

Fantastic, loved every moment. Elina Garanca great as Sesto, she can sing and act and is beautiful and young.
Rest of cast also very good.
I love Opera and can't wait fore the next HD performance, tickets at the Met too costly for me.

This is one of the Mozart operas that is not performed often and one of the few operas that has a happy ending. It is based in Rome under Tito's rule who was a forgiving man; thus the title of "clemency". The entire cast was excellent and singing supurb. Kate Lindsey is such a superb young performer playing Annio, one of the trouser roles. Elina Garancahe plays the other trouser role as Seto, his (her) friend and she stole the show with her voice and acting. The encore performance or a live performance at the Met are the only options to see this one. Although I read it is being broadcast on Sirius radio on Dec 6.

Elina Garancha was absolutely spectacular. Kate Lindsay was excellent also. Giuseppe Filianotti was in excellent voice, and absolutely nailed the characterization of Tito.
The sets were very well done, and the costumes convincing.
The Met Orchestra under Harry Bickett showed again why they're the best opera orchestra on earth.
