"The Tempest"

Brilliant, beautiful, a bit eccentric production of "The Tempest," adapted from Shakespeare's play (not an easy job!) -- excellent singing (though Ariel's highest notes were a bit hard on the ears at times -- not off-key, just extremely high in the soprano range) and acting throughout. Imaginative costumes, especially for Ariel, Prospero, and Caliban. I would encourage people who didn't see the "live" showing to see the encore showing, whenever that is going to run.

Excellent Met production. Simon Keenlyside was especially good.

Very creative set and costumes. Modern atonal music which is not my cup of tea.
