Imagine having the best seats in the Opera House, and being able to go backstage to visit the singers. Then imagine being blown away by amazing voices, dazzling acting, and moving music. Thais was and unforgettable experience.

My husband and I are opera fans but had never had the pleasure of seeing Thais. The performance was one of the most powerful theater experiences we have ever had -- truly magnificent and unforgettable. The singing was superb, the acting great, and the backstage views fascinating.

Thais - Dec 20, 2008 - Simulcast

This was our first viewing of Thais, and we were very impressed with the entire production. We thought Renee Fleming was stunning and her performance outstanding as was the performance of Thomas Hampson. All of the supporting actors and singers were excellent. The violin solo "Meditation" was performed brilliantly, and brought tears to our eyes. We enjoy these HD sumulcasts immensely and look forward to the remaining scheduled operas. We actually find it more entertaining than actually being at the live performance, because of the interviews and the behind the curtain activities. The theater at Regal Swansea Stadium 12 in Swansea MA is excellent and they showed this performance on two screens. Looking forward to more. Roger

What a wonderful experience! I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the opera: sets, costumes, great singing, the orchestra, etc. Perhaps what makes it even more special for me as I am a singer as well, is the idea that I can truly appreciate the behind the scenes moments when the singers are coming right off the stage and the audience can still fell the emotion and passion which was just surrendered by the actor/singer. Bravo!
