wonderful performances by everyone, including the three leads who were magnificent. amc clifton, with its stadium seating is the best location for us, and it is clean and appears to be well run. the customer service desk is always a pleasure to deal with. they are very helpful.

One of classic operas of course. This production's Scarpia was well acted and sung. I am not good with Foreign names but this base baritone was superb. Patricia Racette was a good Tosca. As for the plot, murder, sex and revenge always make for a good romp.

The MetOpera did a great job as usual. Patricia Racette, in the title role of Tosca, Roberto Alagna (Tosca's lover) and George Gagnidze as the operatic antihero, were all fabulous. But my favorite was Gagnidze whose interpretation of Scarpia was very effective. Renee Fleming as host of this production was engaging. Those who have never seen an opera, or who love opera but have not seen any of the Live-in-HD productions by the Metropolitan Opera, will surely love this production. This is not only for classical music lovers but also for those who love theater, musicales, etc. The price certainly is right -- one will have to pay more than $100 to have an equivalent seat in-house! (I would recommend this only for adults.)

Fandango is giving viewers a wonderful opportunity to see a live performance of world-class opera at the Live At The Met Performances. Yesterday we saw Tosca and it was fantastic. I wish more people could see have seen this performance. You are right there with the audience. Rene Fleming was the host for the intermissions where she interviewed the main performers in the cast. We also witnessed how they did the sets backstage. It is better than being in New York! I hope that Fandango will continue to provide opera lovers with these amazing real-time performances. It is like having a $240 seat at the Met!
Thank you Fandango!! I will continue to attend this seasons performances. Can't wait til the next one!

This production of Tosca was riverting! All the performers were in top voice. Thanks to HD, we could experience Tosca's revulsion for Scarpia, the villian. The costumes were gorgeous, especially Tosca's It was better than being at the Met because we had the bonus of seeing Renee Fleming interview the stars, stage director and master carpenter. We are looking forward to attending ALL the Metropolitan Opera in HD Simulcast. GO! Enjoy!
