Middle aged Caucasian playing a 15 yr old Asian in love with an American in Japan all singing in Italian. What’s not to like

Fantastic production. The use of the marionets was creative and very well done.

Wish the lead was a young woman of Asian decent and not a middle aged Caucasian woman.

Production values of this HD presentation are superb. For what it's worth, this was 1st opera I'd ever seen, and it seemed long, especially the 1st act.

Better heard than seen, at least up close. The soprano is too regal for the part; the tenor too old.

Best way to see a beautiful Met production other than actually being in New York. Loved it! Cant wait to see the other operas on the big screen.

Loved the beautiful singing of leading lady. The music was excellent. How can you be wrong with Puccini.

The show, as always with the Met Live in HD, was great. The one star is strictly for Regal Fairfax Towne Center, in Fairfax, VA. Despite my complaint, the show was out of focus the entire time. They usually get it right, but this time they got it very wrong.

AMC Century City sound and screen were excellent. Same with the singing, staging, costuming and story, with informative titles. Puccini famously always searched for good librettos. This is one of his best.
