“Sublime!”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Went to a trio of performances, and all I can say is wow, wow WOW!

Aida had the most dramatic sets. When a wall with soldiers standing atop it sinks into the stage floor to slowly reveal the most lavish temple scene with 100+ performers - incredible!

But my absolute favourite was M. Butterfly. I had dreamed of seeing it at the Met after watching an HD transmission at Cineplex.

The staging is so elegant and dramatic. The acting is superb. The costumes are stunning. The puppeteering masterful. It is all flawless. Forget any Broadway musical and see opera at the Met - you will be blown away!!

“Crown Jewel”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

People all over the country go out to their local movie theaters to see performances from our Met Opera House. Their huge, elaborate, unique productions rival any opera house in the world. I feel fortunate to visit there at least once a year because I have the very best right in my home city.

“IT'S THE MET”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

What more needs to be said? Nothing defines "Opera" like The Metropolitan Opera... its extravagance, its opulence, its sights and ESPECIALLY its sounds. And don't miss their Bookstore!
