La Fanciulla del West

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.

The Girl of the Golden West - Alison's Opinion

By AlisonMcClaren
Written January 10, 2011
Little did I know that Puccini considered this to be his greatest opera! Debra Voigt and the male leads were OUTSTANDING. Loved the sets, the orchestral score is beautiful, and this opera is like no other I have ever seen. I don't want to spoil it and give away the plot....so I will simply say that Christians should love this rendition. I was disappointed that Renee Fleming wasn't hosting but the woman who hosted (cannot remember her name) was fantastic. The staff at Niles Showplace in Niles, IL was the best we had experienced since the simulcasts started. And the crowd we sat with was a lot of fund and very considerate of one another. A five-star day! These simulcasts are the best thing since sliced bread!!!! Alison

Loved the music. It was fabulous. Missed the beautiful costumes you usually see in an opera. I didn't really like the fact that it was a western. Love the Live at the Met experience. I go to as many as I can.
