Maria Stuarda

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!

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.

I am so sorry that I had to miss the showing of Maria Stuarda on Sat. Jan. 19. Can I get a refund for my tickets (2) ? A rain check for another showing ? a different opera?

For someone who knows and loves opera but has never had the opportunity to go backstage and see how the work is put together, going to see a production such as Maria Stuarda is a real treat and an eye-opener. Not only is the HD production incredibly well focused, but the most minute details of the singers and their actions are shown in a way that no one, even sitting on the first row of the theater or even being part of the set of actors, are able to see. In the live production of Maria Stuarda, beyond the impeccable singing of the two queens, their acting was shown in a manner that only someone watching the production as I did, was capable of digesting and enjoying. Superb is the only word I can use to review the opera.

Maria Stuarda

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.
