Rusalka

I saw this Opera for the first & Renee Fleming was excellent, not only her voice was beautiful, her acting was also very good. The other singers were also very good. The background & the costumes were exotic & blend with the story

Renee Fleming is Outstanding!

This opera has it all -- Ms. Fleming's acting and voice brought the music and the script out in such a way to be heart-renching. Everyone should hear her voice in this opera. The scenes were outstanding, the supporting vocals superb -- there's nothing wrong with this production! Go. Go. Go.

The music was beautiful and all of the singers excellent. Renee Fleming was great as usual. And Yannick was a passionate conductor -- it may be that opera is his forte. I am very glad I dragged myself to the encore presentation Wednesday night.

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

Rusalka

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?
