Fabulous production by the New York Metropolitan Opera Company!! The entire production was incredible! The talent was the finest and it was long but we would not have missed it!! Bravo!!

One of the best performances I've ever heard out of the Met. That's with 45 years of listening experience. Production was thought-provoking, singing exceptional--each role was perfectly cast. May be tough going for the opera-newbie, but well worth the effort! Agree with the earlier poster: so good it made the 5.5 hours fly by!!!

Excellent! Die beste Wagnerinszenierung, die ich je gesehen habe. Viel besser, als die derzeitigen Inszenierungen in Bayreuth. Endlich ein Regisseur, der sich nicht selbst verwirklichen will, sondern durch minimalistische Inszenierung das Stück wirken läßt.. So kann man das Stück verstehen und nicht sich abgestoßen fühlen von den verqueren Gedanken wildgewordener Regisseure. Daß die Sänger außerirdisch gut singen rundet die herausragende Aufführung ab. P.M.S.

This was an experience that is hard to explain. The orchestral score was overwhelming and the singing superb! I thought the staging missed the mark entirely particularly in the third act.
