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.

Excellent Met production. Simon Keenlyside was especially good.

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