This was the first time I attended a "Met at the Movies", and I certainly was not disappointed! The cast was OUTSTANDING, and the production elements were fabulous! I was also very pleasantly surprised with the behind-the-scenes look into the Met's inner workings. Incredibly easy to follow, light-hearted, and a great evening out! A MUST SEE for ALL!

The production was fun and lively, the acting excellent and the voices sublime. Un Furtiva Lagrima made my heart soar. We all applauded in the theater along with those live.

I was not an opera fan, but I may be now!

I've been to a few operas in my life, didn't love them. But last night, we went to see L'Elisir d'Amore at Regal Stonecrest Theater in Charlotte, NC. I really enjoyed the live feed aspect of it--from the patrons in NYC entering, finding their seats, sitting and waiting for the curtain to go up while we, too, were doing the same in our theater as were thousands of others around the world, to the behind the scenes interviews with the main characters, with the Met Director, a prop creator and singers in future operas--a coming attractions kind of moment. Loved it! Also loved watching behind the scenes activity as sets were changed between acts. There was an opera star narrating the event, doing the interviews and transitioning acts and breaks and interviews and whose name I do not know, but she did a great job, was genuinely enthusiastic about the performance, the performers, the whole opera scene. My only suggestion is to sub-title names of people a couple of times.

HI Thank you, Thank you Thank you. My very 1st, but certainly not my last time seeing operas in the movies. Being so close to the actors, scenery & costumes I felt It was performed in my living room. It was one of the best i have seen.
