Great cast/chemistry. Wonderful example of simultaneous ensemble singing. Amasing set design and coreography. Although it gets "dark" -- doesn't all Verdi -- something yougsters could enjoy.

Ballo in Maschera HD Live from the MET

Written August 29, 2016
I am a regular opera-goer, long-time holder of a subscription at the Met. Their new production of Ballo is wonderful, the cast could not have been better. While I don't always enjoy updated operas, this production proved to be beyond expectation and totally relavant. The direction and set design were amazing and enhanced Verdi's gorgeous score. However, there was a techinical glitch with the sound the last 5 or so minutes of the first act and through the intermission interviews which I really wanted to hear. It was playing in another theatre in the same venue which did not have the problem so it was obviously not the feed. That was the only disappointment of the afternoon.

I like it very much. I like the theatre also and the seats are comfortable. As a matter of fact I will get more ticket HD tickets.

Amazing

Just amazing! I have seen other productions. I know this was controversial but the singing was beyond compare and is worth it, despite what you might think of the staging. (No one booed in the theatre).
