At first I thought I wouldn't like it, especially the high screeching singing of Ariel. Then I got into it and ended up loving it.

In the many years that I have been going to the Met (both live in NY and HD in theaters), this was one of the finest productions in every aspect that I have ever witnessed. I think it is destined to become one of the greatest of contemporary operas. The cast, especially Simon Keenlyside, from top to bottom was first rate, and the production brilliant.

The Tempest was magnificent. This new production was at first not easy to like. There are few melodies and no easy refrains. However, it draws you in with outstanding performances, haunting music and a great story. I loved it. Seeing it on the screen instead of live had advantages including backstage interviews and views of scenery changes. It was also nice to casually have a little snack and drink a bottle of water at your seat. I'm looking forward to the rest of the Met Opera series.
