WERTHER

If you are interested in seeing and hearing an opera - this would be the one to go to! It was AWESOME!! The title role sung by Jonas Kaufmann was stellar! He is unbelievable, the power and strength of his voice, along with his passionate acting! All the singers were great, but Jonas, the lead tenor, was UNsurpassed! I cannot say enough - Be SURE to go to the encore showing this week on Wed. Mar 19th, at 6:30 pm (local time). You will NOT be disappointed! Werther is a timeless tragedy, so be sure to bring a tissue. It is a very moving story of deep love, combined with wonderful scenery and set - and very innovative use of video and film, for special effects! I was impressed with all aspects - costumes, visual, orchestra, singers, the whole package! WERTHER is a WINNER!!! GO FOR IT - - DON'T MISS IT !!! - Andrea in VA

Seeing/hearing The Met Live is a gift, a shot in the arm, soul food, a fresh perspective, a chance to hear the very best singers, a lifeline, an experience to share with friends all over the country, and now, a necessary fix. Music is a jealous mistress.

THE LIVE PERFORMANCE WAS MAGNIFICENT. HOWEVER, THE LAST 10 MINUTES WERE MARRED BY FIRST, NO SOUND, AND SECOND, NO PICTURE. tHE PROBLEM WAS IN THE TRANSMITTING FROM THE SATELLITE. TOO BAD FOR US. i MAY GO TO SEE THE ENCORE PRESENTATION.

The three of us enjoyed the Metropolitan Opera simulcast of Werther very much, but all of a sudden there was no sound toward the very dramatic end of the opera. This truly ruined our experience. Others in the audience said that this had happened before and is not acceptable. My past experience in NYC has always been satisfactory. I would like to receive 3 replacement tickets for one of the Encore performances in NYC so we can experience the dramatic ending of the opera. Sincerely, Peter K. Schulze

So happy we saw Werther which was not on our Met subscription. It was a memorable experience. Unfortunately transmission was lost in the final 15 mins. Will try to see the encore. Go, go, go!
