I have been an opera fan for over 60 years. Dvorak and Czech are not my preferred choices. But who can resist water & wood nymphs and the pond ogre. Really great singing and music. It's a disappointment that Renee Fleming doesn't sing in the second act but, two out of three is ok. Perhaps what is a terrific plus with Opera in HD is all the backstage action. I pity the audience that doesn't get this PLUS. For some reason we did not get as much backstage as in previous operas. Met Opera sets are mesmerizing but not more than the great voices

Incredible opportunity to experience the excellence of the Metropolitan Opera, LIVE in HD, witht he comfort and convenience of the stadium theater. Despite the lack of advertising of these Saturday matinees at the theater, evidentl 'word of mouth' has caught on and there are more and more people enjoying this wonderful chance to see the best-produced opera without having to travel to New York. The quality of the sound, the video is about as good as it could get.

WHAT BRILLIANCE, JOY and POWER in the Met Opera, yesterday, seen on screen. What a melodious voice, with Renee Fleming portraying the water nymph so beautifully! What inexperience, sitting back, enjoying the performance, the conducting, the intermission as well, witnessing the staging and meticulous preparation for this extraordinary performance. It was an afternoon to remember, shared with good friends! The season is filled with marvelous and enticing choices. Bravo!!! Judith B. Carlson judithb125@gmail.com

Theatre was unable to maintain the Dish feed so we got our money back

This opera is a must. Three of us anxiously awaited seeing this Live from the Metropolitan Opera in HD. The broadcast prior to the performance was good though pixelated at times. And 2-3 minutes into the opera, as we were enthralled with the costumes, set and music we got a giant screen of "Signal lost" which came and went for the next few minutes. It never did come back to the opera and no one from the theatre ever came in to tell us what was going on. We decided we had missed to much in the beginning to be able to watch the rest of it if the broadcast was restored so we marched out and got a refund. There formed a long line of other unhappy people behind us doing the same thing. The couple behind us said this same thing had happened at this theatre at another Met Opera Live performance they had come to. My friend had been to 4 of these performances prior at a different theatre and never had this happen. We are going to the Encore performance in 3 days in a different city.
