Werther Opera

So disappointed with the mechanical failure at the end of a wonderful performance. The audience just had to sit there and read the text without any sound and just a dramatic ending.

Werther Metropolitan Opera

It was a splendid production with magnificent singing. Unfortunately, sound was lost for most of the final act--which is, of course, the dramatic high point of the entire opera.

The last 10 minutes of this wonderful tragic shown on "Live in HD" from the Metropolitan Opera were silent. Maybe something went wrong with the feed? It was so disappointing. If there is a repeat on Wednesday, I hope this will be remedied.

This my first time to see this opera; I enjoyed very much. At first impression, I thought the set was a little austere . Soon however I came to enjoy it adaptability to the profession of the opera immensely. The lead performers, Charlotte, Werther and Sophie were great and readily drew me into the mood as it changed over time.

HD failure

This is a superb production and cast. Very strong lyrical performance by Jonas Kaufman,demonstrating why he is one of the finest sought-after tenors today. The Met HD system lost sound in the final 5-6 minutes, which caused the audience to be quite upset, since it was a one-time, live performance.
