Prince Igor

A spectacular new production (the first in nearly 100 years) with great singing, drama and staging. If you are a fan of 19th-20th century Russian classical music, this is for you. It even may appeal to the "Kismet" fan who will recognize many familiar Borodin themes. This is a production that the Met does best, and you can see all the back stage scene setting in action, like watching the workings of a great ant hill up close, only with narration and interviews of the queen and her lead drones. The Met in HD is a must-see for the true opera buff.

Prince Igor - a Boring Flop!

By Andrea Thornock

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

It is a great way to see Opera without going to the Metropolitan Opera. I used to have subscription tickets to the Met, so it brings back memories. It's a nice alternative. I am very happy to have the opportunity to see some operas on the big screen. Also it's nice to see the activities behind the scene during the intermission. I love it and some of my friends came with me once and were very impressed and it was a real treat for them. Tatyana

Very good except we wish the time period would be retained rather than brought to the 19th century. The dances were not very effective with the background of poppies. Bring in the Bolshoi Ballet!
