My first time to see an opera telecasted from the Met. It was amazing. Particularly enjoyed the background info given, meeting some of the cast and seeing the mechnics of the scenery. Will certainly encourage others to attend.

Packed with emotions

The MET HD broadcast of Tosca (it is not a movie as it is a live broadcast) was fantastic. It is better to see the broadcast version than attending the MET in person. Not only because it is so much cheaper and more accessible, but mainly because of the emotional communications of the actors/singers. These professionals are much more than singers - they are actors of the highest caliber. And you get to witness that because of the close-ups of the cameras. You see their facial expressions, their eyes, their mouths and all the nuances that you wouldn't notice from the audience. (Especially if you were sitting in the nose-bleed section of the fourth balcony.) This show had tremendous emotional impact. I had read the synopsis of the three acts before attending and thought that it sounded shallow. However the emotional impact that the actors imbued into their roles gave it a depth that the synopsis couldn't.

This opera performance was near perfection;music is stunning,performances were wonderfulstaging , was great. Found interviews of performers during intermission added so much. Even the theater was comfortable and good viewing. Needed to offer this performance in a third theater.

This was a superb production-singing and acting excellent. Only problem the intermissions are too long when you see it in HD. The Met tries to fill the 20 or so minutes with interviews but it's a pain!!!!

One comment: I think the amount of close ups was too much. Excellent camera work but as I thought about it later that was my thoughts with friends who went with me. Superb production, sets, acting and of course singing. Puccini does it again with The Met! A+++
