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!

Tosca in HD

The Met Opera HD series is a wonderful way to complement a live opera experience. The sound quality in the movie theaters is poor, so you do need to see the opera live to appreciate the singing. What you get in the film is the close-up visual element, the acting, and the drama. Tosca is particularly appropriate for HD film as it is a very dramatic story with lots of wild and violent goings-on (intrigue, murder, attempted rape, suicide, assassination), and a strong, forceful heroine (unusual for opera). An extra treat with this film is the inclusion (during intermission) of a segment on James Levine rehearsing the Met opera singers for the upcoming "Falstaff."

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!
