This was my first time seeing a simulcast HD opera and I loved it! When I have attended the Met in person the performers were 1" tall but here they are bigger than life and so is the music. Splendid! Of course Joyce DiDonato is impeccable and so was the rest of the cast. Now I'm smitten and want to see all of them this way.

Strong voices. Compelling production. The orchestra was in great form. One of the best of the Live in HD season so far.

This was a beautiful production. Donizetti's beautiful music is a treat, especially in the hands of the two superb female leads. I loved it!

It was my first experience with the movie opera. Mary Stuart (Joyce DiDonato) was excellent. What a voice.
