They did a fabulous job with so very many emotions. I loved it. What a joy to have this option to go to the opera. If anyone did not get to go on Saturday, they really should try to attend the Encore.

The usual superb LIVE in HD Metropolitan Opera matinee. This is probably the best opera to be seen in the world. To be able to see this LIVE in HD with the technologically perfect production is nothing short of miraculous! Happily, there are more people attending the theater (about 800% increase). This should ensure that these theater LIVE in HD will continue.

delight the senses

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!

FABULOUS

It was exciting and exhillarating to watch this performance! And even more so to see the back stage interviews and the changing of scenery. If I had any criticism, it would only be the stunt double who fell from the parapet. She needs to be less obvious...but that is so minor. Stunning performances and Scarpia was as villaneous as any villian ive seen.
