This was my first opera, ever. I never thought I would like opera, but I thought I could not say so without trying it. It was WONDERFUL! Skillful acting would have told me the story even if there had not been subtitles. Beautiful music, and with the panning of the audience I felt as though I were really at the Met. The time flew by, and now I want to see all of them. A classic tale, surprised no modern retelling of the story has been done. I experienced a panopoly of emotions. I loved the intermission features, backstage looks and interviews. I think the setting was a little bit spare, and it was a little bit dark, perhaps, but that fit the mood of the tragic story. I was sad to be the youngest person in there save my daughter who is 20. We need to get the word out-young people are missing out on something incredible! I know I was!

The Metropolitan Opera: Tosca

It was wonderful! The interviews with the stars of Tosca, the crew moving the sets around, the costumes: it was magic watching this great show. It is better than actually being there and affordable.

We thoroughly enjoyed this production of Tosca. Puccini is good any time, but the voices and acting of this production were outstanding! Would love to see this production again!

Loved this opera. The singing was wonderful. The only problem was the final act, the set of which was so dark it was difficult to see what was happening on stage. At one point, "Tosca" looked like a disembodied head because of her black gown blending in with the background. Otherwise, superb.

What a wonderful performance, we were on the edge of our seats the whole time. The intermission interviews added a lot to our enjoyment. Plus there was a moment showing Maestro James Levine rehearsing for an upcoming performance. It is good to see him in such good spirits and back working.
