Rusalka

Unfortunately, due to "technical difficulty" at the theater, the show was cancelled. We hope that a later date can be arranged or at least a performance in the summer. I had seen a previous performance and was really looking forward to seeing it again.

Rusalka

In my opinion, the Met Opera HD productions are always worth viewing. However, the sound in St Louis Park MN theater isn't what it should be. It is too soft and appears to come from the front speakers only. I have been to many of the Met Opera broadcasts and the sound has been inconsistent and inadequate. It should always be maximized for the full opera experience. The singers and the orchestra sound far too distant and quiet. Please solve this problem so the opera viewers can hear the music the way it was intended. Turn up the volume please.

Very interesting. I had not seen it before and enjoyed it immensely. Thank goodness for these filmed performances. I had to give up my season subscription years ago when The Met raised its prices into the stratosphere; so it's nice that we now have this option. Renee Fleming was, as always, magnifkicent.

Live in HD at the Met

sound quality (which is paramount) and visuals (color washed out a great deal. Just look at the inside of the Met at intermission. All the seats, patrons, curtain are washed out) are not good enough. Great singing though. BG

A lush, magical production. The hefty healthy shapes of Rusalka and her sisters, the curvy water sprites, do not detract from your loving their singing, acting, character study and graceful beauty. The male singers and two witch-like ladies were powerful. Each of the singers female and male was superb, the quality and emotions awesome. What operatic Oscars can you give? The sets deserve a huge one. The backstage intermission scenes were a real eye-opener and deserve an opera themselves: the melodic on stage versus the cacaphony behind the curtain. Any brave versatile composers taking the bait? Stravinsky, where are you when we need you?
