Just watched my first Met Live HD broadcast at a local cinema. I could tell that it was a performance at which I would have loved to be present. The sound system in the theater was not up to the task of reproducing what the audience at the Met was hearing to an approximation that would not have frustrated me. I enjoyed Lepage’s production. The visual aspects came through pretty well. The use of the choruses was effective, and I enjoyed the principals. The orchestra did a good job. But, after all, I wish I could have been there. http://ping.fm/A35D3
