I took my Opera Workshop to this event. It was a stunning 4 1/2 hours of Opera performances and behind the scene action at the Met. My students learned a great deal with this wonderful opportunity to see and hear Rene Flemming play three different roles from three different operas. A great evening! I and my students plan to attend more of these simulcasts. It is a great way to make opera more accessible to the public. J Montgomery

MET Opera Season Gala

It was fantastic! Many opera fans in the world enjoyed this special 4 hours and half event just for 22 dollars. Incredible! We go to MET Operas after Christmas enjoying 3 consecutive evenings for every year, but we don't do that any more. We will enjoy MET opera HD version through the screen just 10 minutes away from home. What you see is everything---backstage, interviews with the singers, and stage director and costume designers, which you cannot see at MET opera house in NY. Susan Graham did a wonderful job leading us to the gala introduction and all through the 3 operas. Renee Fleming was just perfect for everything --opera singer (Italian, French, German) and Actress with beautiful costume. I cannot hope any more than that. Thanks again. I really appreciate the person who invented this system (Peter Gelp?). My husband and I have already purchased 5 tickets each for this season. Sincerely, stsnck

The theater was packed...Renee Fleming was superb. Enjoyed the "behind the scenes" reviews, staging, gorgeous costumes and sets. Where else could you hear the best opera singers for such a low price. My husband and I will definately go to every event that is offered.

An absolutely fabulous presentation! Renee Fleming was stunning in all three operatic roles she played. I look forward to the next Metro Opera on-line presentation.

Better than being there !! Cool closeups and behind the scenes action plus pop corn, coke and casual attire. Loved it all! Renee Fleming is fabulous and then some!
