This is a beautiful production: the singing is outstanding, the acting fine, though in some instances a bit "over the top." I would ask the theater to tone down the sound, as it is too loud to fully enjoy the subtleties of the music.

The music and singers are outstanding. But there is too much extraneous material during the intermissions. I was particularly annoyed by the preview of Falstaff just after the second act intermission. I know the Met wants to promote its upcoming events but it can --and does--do that before the show begins.
Tosca is a short opera. But the running time was 3 1/2 hours. Especially on the encore they should pare down the presentation. That is, if you want to appeal to a younger crowd.

FANTASTIC!! I NEVER ENJOYED AN OPERA THIS WELL EVEN PAYING OVER $300 FOR ORCHESTRA TICKETS AT THE MET.
GREAT IDEA TO BRING OPERA TO THE "PEOPLE" AT REASONABLE PRICE.
GREAT CAMERA WORK -- CAN SEE THE COORDINATION OF MUSIC, LIBRETTO AND ACTING. GREAT PERFORMANCE.
TITLES ARE EXCELLENT, EASY TO READ AND TRUE TO THE ORIGINAL LANGUAGE.

Amazing singing and acting. I've seen this opera many times, live and recorded, and have never been so moved or involved. I wish the Met would retire this particular production, however. There is nothing about Tosca that cries out for ugly sets and lackluster costumes.

On my wife's birthday, my wife left her office early with great anticipation of seeing the Met and Tosca. We arrived early to get a good seat. We were surprised to find out that AMC had listed the Show time at 6 PM and our ticket said 6:30.
Once inside the theater we we informed that there were technical difficulties and were not able to see the opera and asks to leave. Of course they said the were "sorry" refund our money and gave us two free tickets.
What was curious was the opera was running in the other theater just fine. But the theater was sold out.
My wife will never have a 55th birthday again. And will probably pass on using your service again.
I am very very unhappy.
