Gala Event

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.

If you can't be at the Met, this is definitely the next best thing! Susan Graham and Deborah Voight were excellent hosts and Ms Fleming was in excellent voice throughout. I loved every moment of it!

Metropolitan Opera: Opening Night Gala

By rosiethereviewer
Written September 24, 2008
The event was spectacular and we really enjoyed all of the performances by each of the Stars. It was also interesting to see all of the "backstage" activity and learn about the costumes and wigs and scenery that went into the production.Of course, we missed Beverly Sills who used to emcee the event. We did not enjoy the venue however. This should have been held in the Casino's showroom - not in a movie theater. Drinking soda and eating popcorn and hotdogs doesn't exactly match the criteria of "elegance" that should have been part of an event like this. While I realize that this is aired all over the country and unlike Las Vegas, many of the theaters aren't in Casinos, surley any hotel with a banquet room can accomodate this with a large movie screen and offer suitable beverage (i.e., champagne) and elegant appetizer service, for an additional cost, which we would have been happy to pay. I am going to pass along my suggestions to the Casino's Marketing Dept. THANK YOU!

If you're an Opera Buff, you'll love it! Not only was the opera amazing, but they did interviews of people who were there in person and showed it playing on the big screen in Time Square; It really made the whole experiance a great one.
