Opera Tosca was great

This is an Opera, not a Movie. Opera Tosca was exciting, I was clinging to my seat. 2nd Act was righteous. But 3rd act had a sad ending. The performers were good but 2nd rank, except Scarpia, who was great and evil as required.

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.

Puccini's Tosca

This was my first Tosca experience and only my second Metropolitan Opera HD. This may very well be the best way to introduce opera. Love the subtitles, behind the scenes interviews and watching the set changes. Very passionate performances from the lead characters. So looking forward to more Met in HD performances. Would definitely see again. Will definitely go to the Met for live performances as well after this experience.

Loved Tosca. The Met production was wonderful. Voices were great. Terrific experience. Except: Theater was VERY cold. Attendents had to be found to lower the lights when the first Act started.. Lights went dow fine at the beginning of second Act, but stayed on through all of Act III. Annoying, but not the end of the world. Will definitely come back for more.

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.
