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!!
