The Tempest

By Steve Sharp
Written November 16, 2012
The staging was spectacular and the acting was first rate; worthy of a Shakespeare play. The music was okay but not memorable and lacking in impact. The book (i.e. the lyrics and spoken words) was very poor and took away from the impact of the overall performance. All in all it was an enjoyable performance but not one that I would recommend to others or rush to see again.

Excellent Met production. Simon Keenlyside was especially good.

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

It got better and better - was most unusual, but extremely well done. Fabulous voices and costumes. that's the Met for you!
