A Great Saturday Afternoon

This was a great Saturday afternoon. As the opener for The Met HD, a lovely choice. If you cannot get to NYC and pay a premium you will still see and hear a terrific opera afternoon. Usually, the broadcast has no technical problems but this did have two times that the sound and picture were interrupted. We missed only a few minutes of the performance.

This is what opera is all about. An absolutely sublime production. The sets and costumes were great. The singers were wonderful, I can't say enough, I just loved it.

If you were't among the fortunate to hear this Opera on HD, try to catch the encore. That's on November 7th. You will be treated to a fabulous evening of tremendous voices. The sets costumes, and direction are superb.

Having seen Luciano Pavarotti in this opera several times, I was not sure I could really enjoy it without him. However, this was a fabulous production, in every way. Anna Natrebko was amazing, positively in fabulous voice. The baritone and tenor were great as well. And I loved the production. Beautifully sung but also beautifully directed with great sensitivity. Magnifique!

L'Elisir d'Amore was one of the best of performances from HD-LIVE @ THE MET. The whole series has been wonderful but this was off-the-charts excellent.
