The HD opera broadcasts are a completely different experience from the live productions. The close up camera work, backstage scenes and interviews are worth every penny. The quality of the sound varies from theater to theater. The star of this La Traviata, Nadine Sierra is at the top of her game and is magnificent. The theater we were in for this showing actually had a fire emergency and we all had to evacuate after an hour or so. That was a huge disappointment.
Awesome production, singing, and acting!
