great opportunity to take front row at the Met for only $24.00 the opera itself is an epic which should not be missed. Ok it is in russian but besides from the translation the drama can be felt through the expression of the voice and the face. Still time for the encore on wednesday

Love the Polovtsian Dances

By fredtowers

I love the music of the Dance of the Polovtsian Maidens. The staging was fabulous in this production, as was the singing and orchestra. But who had the not-so-bright idea of including Polovtsian male ballet dancers?? They sure weren't maidens.

Prince Igor

The singers and orchastra were outstanding as usual. The production was unusual but effective. Prince Igor is not a very easy opera to absorb. There are no melodies that stay with you. But it was a very worthwhile performamce.

Great choruses and wonderful individual arias, more recitative in structure. The poopy scene was unique as was the third Act.fww

Prince Igor - a Boring Flop!

By Andrea Thornock
Written March 18, 2014
Wow - what a waste of time and money! I am a professional opera singer and voice instructor, and LOVE opera! What a huge disappointment this one was! I was looking forward to several lovely well-known Borodin melodies, with an interesting story line - none of the above occurred! It was SO slow moving, and the costumes were quite disappointing. And the mezzo who was supposed to be sexy was anything but! Some good voices, but a real bore all along. I wanted to get up and leave in the middle, but I decided i needed to know how it ended. So I stuck it out... DON'T waste your precious energy on this one! Go to WERTHER or LA BOHEME or COSI FAN TUTTE instead! Never again - once was more than enough.... Andrea in VA
