TOSCA

By steffi1
Written November 14, 2013
My friends have been telling me about the MetOperas - this was my 1st visit. It did not disappoint - it was so wonderful to be able to see the stars larger than life and the sets, and the details of the costumes,, even the intermissions were interesting when the stars were interviewed and you could see the underpinnings of how these performances are created. I look forward to going to many more. These performances are great for people who would not necessarily be able to go to New York or even afford it, and it makes the ARTS accessible for a wider range of audience.

good opera. But WAY TOO LONG with all the intermission broadcast. Not necessary to show Charlie Rose with Levin or other things. At least at the Met you can go have a drink.

Tosca

By michaeljyd

This was a good production, not a great one. My comments are directed toward the theater at Roseville. First, the production was 45 minutes late in starting, with no explanation given. When it did "start" we sat through another 30 minutes of commercials, many repetitive. Third, the screen aspect was wrong: a box instead of wide screen. Fourth, just as Tosca discovers that Mario is dead the screen went completely blank and remained so for the next 30 to 45 seconds. The Roseville theater consistently has problems showing these broadcasts; I'm looking for another venue for the remaining met HD broadcasts. The Met broadcasts are consistently top quality productions, but Roseville is not the place to see them.

Excellent "Tosca"

This was a transmission from the Metropolitan Opera and there will not be another opera transmission until December. The cast was excellent, and we enjoyed the opera very much. The theatre seems to have technical problems getting the transmissions started on time and at the right volume. It started about 25 minutes late. I wish they could figure out how to receive and project these transmissions properly.

It was exceptional! We have seen Tosca many times including one with Pavarotti at the met and this was in every way comparable. However, we saw the Encore presentation and the intermissions were too long. Since it was on film it would have been simple, I think to cut them down. Arlene
