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.

THE LAST TEN MINUTES THE SOUND WENT OFF AND THE LAST TWO MINUTES THE SCREEN WENT BLANK

An Opera is a piece of art and this in particular is a Jules Massenet's masterpiece. The performance of Kaufman was good (not extraordinary as it is usual) and Mrs. Koch was so-so; she was a modest Charlotte. But the worst was what I said in the title space of this review: during the last 10 minutes the sound went OFF and during the 2 last minutes the screen went BLANK; no sound, no video. Who has heard and seen this opera many times like myself knows every passage and every aria but we need to watch the piece every time on its integrity and this was not the case. The Met and/or Fandango should explain to the spectators what happens: we deserve it!

Outstanding. One of the best opera performances we have ever seen. Unfortunately the audio portion of the HD tele-transmission went dead in the last act about 5-8 minutes before the final curtain. This was a disappointment but had nothing to do with the quality of the performance which was outstanding. Dr. Axton
