Maria Stuarda was wonderful

My first experience at HD and seeing the Met. It was truly amazing. I could never see everything as closely as with HD. The acoustics in the Regency Theatre in Jacksonville is terrific. It was very emotional and must admit to tears nearing the end. Can't wait for Feb 16th so I can see Rigoletto. Thanks to all that have made this available.

Impeccable presentation. Ms. Di Donato did an outstanding job like the rest of the cast. It is a blessing that viewers like me can see Met Operas and provide us with so much culture at a reasonable price. Let me know when the DVD is available. Amalio

It was an unexpectedly overwhelming experience. The voices, the acting the sets, and even the fictionlized history of Mary Stuart and Elizabeth Tudor were incredibly moving.Joyce di Donato is already a national treasure. I'm enjoying the simulcasts more than the live performnces. Brava!

A rich and powerful opera experience. Joyce DeDonato is especially impressive.for her powerful singing and emotional range, but the total package of misic, voices, costumes, staging is remarkable.

This performance was magnificent. Of all the wonderful singers, Joyce DiDonato, stood out--for her acting as well as her sisnging. Forgetting she was Joyce, I was convinced that she was Maria.
