Poor broadcast quality

The singers and production were fine. The broadcast quality was not - there were dropouts in the audio and video. The Met should offer refunds or tickets to the rebroadcast.

Turandot from Met Opera

By gwenfranco

There was something wrong with the sound throughout the whole opera. The person from the movie house told us the problem was with the satellite transmission. It was very disturbing all through the three acts of the performance. Many of us thought we should get our money back, or at least be given free tickets to another Saturday matinee opera program.

Turandot in HD

By Regal Park Met
Written November 10, 2009
Turandot was spectacular with wonderful singing, great conducting and orchestra performance, and excellent intermission features, Sadly, this was all marred by the intermittent loss of sound track and screen viewing. I am assuming this was from the Met's transmission but the same thing has happened before at the Citrus Park showings. Something needs to be done about this as you will lose many customers. My wife and I love Turandot. The sets. costumes and staging enhanced the glorious muisic so we had a most satisfying afternoon despite the glitches. One lady sitting next to us had never attended an opera before and she was thrilled. It would be good for teenagers who like classical music and any adults who like theater and classical music.

Turandot

This Opera is one of my favorites and I think Puccini"s best, as this production is unequaled, saying that, this is the first time after attending many HD telecast that technical difficulty disrupted the smooth running....It didn't away from the Opera but it was very agravating... the question is...was it the equipment in the theater or the Met...or on transmission itself..guess we will never know

Turandot

This opera production was among the greatest I have ever seen after 40 years of opera going. The music, the visuals, the sets, the singers all fantastic. Unfortunately there were glitches in the broadcast at various times which made the watching more difficult.
