iT WAS VERY ENTERTAINING. HOWEVER, THE LEAD ACTRESS PLAYING A MALE DID NOT EXPRESS HERSELF ENOUGH AS PORTRAYING A MALE. THE STORY LINE WAS EXCELLENT.

Beautiful, Beautiful Opera!!! From scene one when Blythe just pronounces the name "Euridice, Euridice" I was in tears ! Great set, Great chorus, interesting dance and movement, wonderful and powerful Gluck's music and O what a twosome iin Blythe and de Niese !!! This opera is not to be missed--an "encore" version should be coming very shortly and I advise all who possibly can to see it in it's big screen effect--you will be very pleasantly surprised !

We would be more interested in attending movies IF movies were actually culturally enriching as this Metropolitan Opera telecast was. The lack of cultural refinement was especially noticable when leaving the theatre and seeing the flotsam and jetsam who were entering to see the latest offering into mind-numbing pop culture.

ORFEO ED EURIDICE

By Janice Coleman

This was a disappointment. The dance detracted from the music. The great flute solo was eliminated which is like leaving the violin solo, Meditation, out of THAIS. Gluck wrote the most beautiful, profound music and it was diminished by the visuals. After seeing the ENCORE performance of LA RONDINE, which was so beautifully done, we had much higher expectations for ORFEO ED EURIDICE.
