This Met production had excellent singing, acting, and staging, with a great choice of cast. I just wanted hear and see Lucy Crowe to sing more. All of the acting and singing for all the cast members was great!

Was disappointed with the screen size of the presentation. Was only 3/4 of screen and centered toward the bottom. The HD that was adverstised was less than impressive. I was also disappointed with the Intermission period. There was a onscreen countdown clock that showed intermission time, which when finished, just moved on to move behind the scenes interviews. We left after another 15 minutes of these interviews, skipping the 2nd half.
We've watched presentation last year of The Nutcracker from the NYC Ballet and it was much better produced that the MET production was. We will not be planning on attending any more MET productions via Fantom Events.

stunning vocal beauty....a gem of a "lesser work" by MOzart, often denigrated because of plot, but more than compensated for by the sheer glory of the music and voices. If you have not seen it, do so!
