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.

Magnificent performance by all involved!!! Gorgeous costumes. Wigs were amazing! Behind the scenes views were so enlightening. Loved every minute! Would do it again in a heartbeat!!!

Once the glitches with the sound (no sound the first 5 minutes) got sorted, it was fine. I enjoyed seeing the divas who were hosting, the art featuring the divas, the interviews with composers and visitors in Times Square and the mayor. Renee Fleming was superb as were the supporting singers.
My husband got bit by a black widow spider during the national anthem so we had some anxiety about whether to stay or leave the theater. We stayed, and he is recovering fine, but the theater needs to do a fumigation or something.

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.
