Great until there was no audio during the finale!

It was great till something interfered with the satellite transmission IN THE LAST 10 MINUTES! So we watched the finale, and encores in total silence. I don't know if this happened in all theaters or just ours. Jonas Kaufmann was masterful as was Sophie Koch.

"Werter's" lost, last seven minutes

Loved the opera until audio breakdown at critical end. Does Fandango have any response to those of us who spent $25 or more to go home disappointed? At least the Met is running the last few minutes online.

Werther

Jonas Kaufmann is incredible as Werther . I'm so grateful to the Metropolitan Opera for making these Live in HD performances available and to AMC movie theaters for showing them.

WERTHER

It was one of the very best HD transmissions from the Metropolitan Opera. The singing, acting, scenery, and costumes were first-class and so was the orchestra. This is a "Must Go."

Sound quit during dramatic climax of Werther

By noirfan

Werther in this new Met production was ravishing in terms of set and costumes. The music was gorgeous. The two principals were outstanding. Jonas Kaufmann stole the show with his strong tenor that never tired. He's a terrific actor too, showing the stress and suffering of unrequited love. It's too bad the sound quit during the incredibly moving death scene. At our theater they said the problem was at the Met itself and not local. If so, with an international audience of 3 million, that is not good for the Met's reputation and doesn't say much for American technical know-how. I'd rate the performance "Must go" if I could have heard the last scene. Disappointed in North Carolina
