Someone recently told me about the The Met Live in HD and after my disappointment with the Opera in Denver it has really impressed me. Essentially the Met broadcasts several of its annual productions to movie theaters around the country in HD live. I went to see the encore of Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra last month and at the end of the month I am going to see Hamlet. It was a really good experience. Renee Fleming introduces the opera on screen and she interviews the singers between Acts. Also as an audience in the movie theater you get to see behind the scenes between Acts and watch them changing scenery in the intermissions. It was fantastic.
