Wonderful production. The singers were very strong. First two acts were better than the third one.

Theater is TERRIBLE (Hollywood 24, Atlanta, GA)

The projector in this Hollywood 24 (Atlanta, GA) theater wasn't working, so everyone standing in line outside couldn't see the MET performance. The theater managers, however, didn't tell everyone until the last moment (5 min before show time), when it was too late to go to another theater to see this wonderful production. Perhaps the theater managers were hoping they would get it fixed in time, putting their financial well being over serving their customers. Furthermore, they then tried to get us to go to another theater, rather than paying us back. Finally, they only paid us back and provided NO compensation for time wasted and for missing the show. Absolutely terrible customer service. This happened to me one other time before at this same theater, where the theater managers didn't handle failure to transmit the show professionally. In the future, I will do everything that I can to avoid going to this theater, and will encourage all of my friends to go elsewhere as well.

There were technical problems, like blurry images in the Poppy scene, and the man who did the interviews was totally inept. But the opera itself was superb and beautifully done. I do wish a better interviewer could be found--this chap was truly awful.

Rince Igor

Delightful. Since I was familiar with Borodin's music owning several of his works as well as the Broadway show, Kismet it was interesting to hear how thosae wonderful melodies were incorporated into the opera. The cast was great, acting delightful, scenery, as always marvelous. Only thought: it took a few moments to catch on to what the opera was trying to say with the close ups of Prince Igor face and then the scenes in the poppy field. We finally got it, but it took a bit.

A truly wonderful, spectacular production, though perhaps a bit long, but that is the length of the work. The singing is beautiful. Ildar who played Prince Igor has such a beautiful voice as did the other leads. The staging and orchestral playing was top notch also. I probably would not run out to see it immediately again, but it is a work one knows about and finally have had a chance to experience. After all who doesn't know "A Stranger In Paradise" and the Polovtsian Dances. Now we know where they came from. It is not a production of kids. Everything about the work is top notch.
