This movie was a wonderful blend of incredible singing and acting. The close up filming of the opera allowed us to see every expression and nuance adding to the experience. In addition, the behind the scenes interviews, rehearsal footage and live view of set changes made us feel a part of the program.

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.

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.

I thought it was very well done and enjoyed. I am new to th e opera so its difficult for me to judge but I liked it very much.
