Fabulous! Of course, Renee Fleming makes it a MUST! She is extraordinary with that taffy like voice--crystal clear like a bell. Her stage presence and acting ability is also outstanding. Of course, being gorgeous to begin with doesn't hurt a bit!! What prince wouldn't fall in love with her...as a nymph or a human being!!

absolute beautiful performance

An absolutely beautiful performance by all of the performers, but especially Renee Fleming. It is such a treat to be able to see opera in the theater as we do not have an opera house in our town. The sets, costumes and orchestra were all dazzling. I loved all of the backstage interviews and previews, but my husband thought it made things a little long. All in all what a treat!

Technical problems at the theater

Unfortunately, no one at the Regal Commerce Cinema in North Brunswick, NJ got to enjoy this performance as the live streaming sound connection did not work, there was no sound, and the audience was sent home. At least once before at this venue, we watched a Met HD performance with the speakers on one side not working. I am a big fan of Renee Fleming and I am sure the performance was wonderful; I am just disappointed that I missed it!

As a lover of Italian operas and unfamiliar with the others I have to admit that I found this opera beautifully done, the music was fantastic and sweet and the story was the usual with a sad ending. However I don't think anyone goes to the Opera because of the plot. I love being able to go to the local theatre and particapate in viewing the performance coming directly from the Met. Such a joy.

No sound at Regal Cinema, N. brunswick, NJ

We and 400 other people were submitted to yet another problem with the sound in this theater during a Met in HD presentation. This time there was no sound at all. A manager walked into the auditorium 5 minutes before the opera was due to start, saying there was "no way" they could show the opera with sound, and we could use our tickets for a future Met in HD performance or line up for a refund. This is unacceptable. Last Fall they couldn't get the main front speakers or the smaller ones on the right side to work and we had to listen to the opera with only the tinny sound from the left side. We've had to complain about the sound being way too loud or way too soft. We've had dropouts during performances. This theater obviously doesn't know what it's doing. It's time for everyone involved -- the Met, Fathom, Fandango -- to pull these presentations from them and move them to another local theater, such as the Loew's on Rte. 1 in New Brunswick.
