An exciting performance of a beautiful opera! The Metropolitan Opera Live in HD series continues to be a brilliantly conceived service to make great opera accessible to everyone. The behind the scenes interviews and views of stagehands at work during intermissions enhance the experience. Technically, the sound and video are beautiful, making seeing and hearing an opera on the big screen the next best thing to being in the opera house.

Again an excellent production of a lesser known Puccini opera.

It was great - very demanding roles for the principals and very well done. What a large chorus, - all very good. Thanks for bringing these operas to the world - most of whom will never have the opportunity to attend the Met in person. Keep up the good work.

Not a Puccini fan

I am not a huge Puccini fan and the libretto of the first act nearly drove me nuts BUT the singing was superb and I was finally carried away by Acts II and III .... and I totally loved the intermissions....the interviewer and interviewees (including the horses) were fascinating. Having taken the backstage tour....it was fun to retrace our steps.
