L'Elisir d'Amore was excellent, especially unigue was the backstage interview and the closeups of the singers faces.. Theorchestra was sincronized, the tenor was terrific and Anna was in perfectform.

L'Elisir d'Amore

If you love opera, this is a must see. The cast is superlative and the HD makes it so enjoyable, I can't wait to see the next one. Way better than going to the MET, and so much cheaper. This is especially important when they show their "new" productions because most of them are terrible and ruin the feel of the opera. This production was fine, however.

the audience at the Met gave Matthew Polenzani tenor the most sustained ovation i have heard since Juan Diego Flores hit 3 (or was it 4) high Cs. he was good a being the mopping lovesick bumpkin. Anna Netrebko was lively as always and in excellent voice. the peddler of L'elisir was hilarious and also sang well...and then there as Mariusz Kwiecien in a part perfect for his skills as a lecher. a very enjoyable if very silly opera. a

Composer: Gaetano Donizetti This comic opera is one of the best, and this production the best of all I've the several I have seen, making the operetta (comic opera) less cartoonish and more a story about real people and their feelings. The acting and singing are as good as it gets, and Donizetti always has a gift for toe-tapping melodies. In general the Met opera broadcasts in HD is a great way to become acquainted with the delights of this art form. Because the broadcasts are worldwide, the Met puts its best on display. That's not always the case at the Met in New York City. Plus you get to see back stage scenes of sets being put in place or remove, and interviews with the stars at intermission.
