I'm hooked on HD broadcasts from the Met and thank Fandango for making the ticket buying so easy. They even sent me a correction on the time of broadcast! I should have paid attention to the length of this opera--5 hours--because we had to miss the 5th act. I confess I slept through some of this, but only because I had to get up so early to see it. Excellent production of this rarely seen opera.

The first act was great - loved the soprano. The second act was too long and didn't move the production. The soprano in the second act was ok. Wanted to stay for third act, but didn't
because of the length of the opera. Too too long.

Unbelievable. Had never seen this opera and thought I would leave after the first 2 hours. Over 5 hours and didn't seem like 2 had passed. Glad the Met put this classic on HD Live.

The simulcast was fantastic..............Met opera simulcasts always are. The seats in Theatre 3, however, are some of the MOST uncomfortable I've encountered. And I don't suppose you are able to control all the sound booms & blasts coming from the movies of the enjoining theatres ...........really is distracting. You really treat $22.00 ticket patrons more poorly than they deserve. Now that AMC30 no longer participate as a venue it seems you could more amply acommodate a larger crowd.

As usual, the Met's production of Les Troyens was mind-blowing in scope and quality.
And, I'm afraid, also as usual, our local theater's sound equipment kept breaking up the transmitted audio throughout the performance, anywhere from once a second to every ten seconds or so.
Bad sound for a Met opera? Why bother to go?
