The Metropolitan Opera: Opening Night Gala

By broikido
Written September 27, 2008
Renee Fleming and the other singers were fabulous. Too bad the sound didn't get in sinc earlier. It was frustrating to miss so much of the beginning.Hopefully this won't happen with the rest of the performances this season.

Metropolitan Gala with R. Fleming

Everything was brilliant. The staging, the casts and the between intermission program. Sitting in a comfortable seat at the Walnit Creek theater made a perfect evening's entertainment.

Metropolitan Opera

The performances were wonderful, yet the theater (Bella Terra, Huntington Beach) did not keep the promise of the Met advertising. We were placed in a small theater with a relatively small screen and certainly not HD sound to match the occasion. Also, at the beginning of the presentation, the audience was forced to lip read as no one was in the booth to be sure that the capacity audience had a good transmission going. For tickets in excess of $20, we should have been given more appreciation and consideration as their customers.

125th Metropolitan Opera Season Opening Night Gala Starring Renée Fleming

By worthyartlover
Written September 25, 2008
Renée Fleming - the exceptional and awesome soprano (fully qualified Diva though never with the airs of one) sang a complete scene from THREE totally different operas in Italian, French and German: La Traviata (Act II) – Verdi; Manon (Act III) – Massenet; Capriccio (Final Scene) – Richard Strauss. There will be more spectacular operas and music to come for our enjoyment and 'therapy' so I encourage everyone to check out the Metropolitan Opera Live in HD series at your local movie theatre. The list of other opera performances and dates are at [BLOCKED WEBSITE] and you can check the movie theaters where they'll be shown in HD at [BLOCKED WEBSITE]
