This is what an opera should be- emotional, beautiful, Domingo, a genius composer in Verdi and a genius conductor in Levine. Adrianne Pieczonka almost upstaged the male roles. She owns the part of Amelia. The set designs were exquisite and majestic. Every deatail of this performance was perfection.

Simon Boccanegra

I thoroughly enjoyed the live Metropolitan production of Verdi's Simon Boccanegra. I have only seen this opera one other time in my life at Chicago's Lyric Opera. It was such a pleasure to rediscover such a great Verdi score again after all these years. The cast was truly excellent and it was truly amazing to hear Placido singing a baritone role so exquisitely. The richness and color of his voice were wonderful to hear and he's such an excellent actor as well. The soprano did a excellent job and I especially enjoyed the singer who did the role of Paolo. The production and costumes were gorgeous. It was so enjoyable that I would love to see it sgain It was so well attended that i had to sit way in the front, which was not the best vantage point, but I still enjoyed it so much! George Tenegal
