Tosca was fantastic

The simulcast broadcast version of Tosca was fantastic. Beautiful music, great singers and marvelous sets made this a memorable performance. If you can't see opera live this is the next best thing.

tosca - awesome performance

is first time I did the met-at-the-movies thing, and now I plan to do them all in the future. Love seeing opera this way... even if I could afford best seats at an opera of comparable quality (I live on west coast US, so I can't make a quick trip to the met) I doubt I would get any better immersion in the brilliant acting and singing than I did watching this movie. I also enjoyed the interviews and backstage stuff that surrounded the intermissions, something I would not get at a typical live performance (granted, sometimes with the live productions you can pay extra for special admission to backstage gatherings, rehearsals and so on). My only complaint might be, yikes, with 2 20 minute intermissions, thing takes almost half a day ! But as I say, it was time well spent... two days later I am still haunted by memories of it.

Tosca live brodcast

By standevries

Wonderful experience - the cinema house was packed, the interviews and behind-the-scenes atmosphere contributed to the excitement. The baritone (Scarpia) and the tenor (Cavaradossi) were thrilling. Only complaint is that the cinema management turned on full lights during he first intermission which washed out the intermission part of the broadcast.

Am so happy to have seen this production of Tosca. The staging was great and the performances impeccable. You feel like you are right there at the Met. And I love the backstage tours and the interviews with the performers during the intermissions. These shows are highly recommended for all!

Tosca, Met Live in HD

By amkunzler
Written November 10, 2013
Great performance by the Met, but bad performance by the AMC Empire 25 theater: very bad sound quality, way too loud, distorting the voices. A bit better in act 2, so evidently someone complained, but why can't the staff pay attention? For another Opera performance a few weeks ago the house lights were not turned on at intermission, putting visitors at risk when they tried to use the restrooms... Let us face it, the majority of people attending the Met in HD are seniors... Do you want broken bones and law suits?
