Un Ballo in Maschera is wonderful. Some of the choreography is a bit over the top and some of the sets are a bit spare, but the music and acting are first class.

Superb! The Met simulcasts are better than going to the opera house. The viewer is right in the action, The sound system is also excellent. AND the price is right!

Ballo in Maschera HD Live from the MET

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.
