It was excellent - Alanga and Rancitte were just wonderful. I could see this over and over and never tire of Puccini's wonderful music. You must try to see if you can.

Great Opera Performance --NO PROGRAMS

For the second time that I have been to see an H.D. Opera at the Riverview Movie Theater in Philadelphia this season, they haven't printed enough programs. Yesterday, at least a hundred people, including ourselves, were without a program to read about the opera!!

A real treat! The singing and acting was superb! Fun to go behind the scences to watch the breakdown of the sets, the rehearsal of future production and the cast interviews. Would highly recommend.

Though the lead performers are not the very best, they were all good in this live performance from the Met. Alagna's best was achieved in "e lucevan e stella" aria, the rest of his performance was, as usualy, too harsh, grainy and forced. Racette was fine, not great, and Gagnizde was a good Scorpia. But what was terrific were the acting and chemistry of the performers, as well as the orchestra. The photography was also superb, with marvelous close-ups of the performers throughout. This was particularly important in this production because the set is an updated and only slightly embellished version of the minimalist Bundy production. It does not aid or add to the performance so good that it was not much in view. In fact, that probably makes it better to see in HD transmission than live at the Met!!

Racette, Alagna, and Gagnizde were superb with their singing and dramatic acting. The program was a real treat. However, the Management at AMC Theatre in Clifton Commons need to speak with their employees in their projection room. During the third act, the audience members could hear loud talking coming from this room.
