Atom User Reviews for The Metropolitan Opera: Porgy and Bess
Gorgeous voices, excellent acting, beautiful music, slightly too long, but worth it! Made me cry.
I thought that in places the opera dragged. The singers were good.
Any other production has to be amateur hour compared to this version.
Very beautiful Live from Lincoln Center Metropolitan Opera House performance.
Better than average plot
Only see if you're a fan of operas and theatre
Great cast, phenomenal singing and nice storyline.
This show fell completely flat. There were no ebbs and flow or heights of emotion. Porgy and Bess had no chemistry. Many of the voices were great as well as the dancers.
Absolutely the best Production of Porgy and Bess that I’ve seen!! OUTSTANDING!!! Bravo!!!!
I think the idea of a simulcast it great! I felt the play as slow in many areas. The intermission was very long.
Beautiful staging and acting. Magnificent voices
Amazing performance in every way!!
MUCH TOO LONG. Movie started 30 minutes later than scheduled and the intermission was much too long. I felt trapped.
Magnificent voices...great staging....beautiful story
Great show! Awesome vocals, great performance, nice set
At times it was hard to hear. Needs sound engineering. Fantastic singers, dancers and staging.
The story is timeless and the cast was amazing. The sound quality wasn’t the best.
Beautiful performances by the entire cast!! Brava performance from Angle Blue!
Great voices but much of the music was atonal.
Wonderful performances. Could have skipped the intermission.
Just wonderful. Love these live opera broadcasts. Keep them coming!!!
Wonderful singing. Emotional performances. Captivating storyline.
Beautiful voices great music that still seems modern.
About 20 minutes too long and a bit repetitive but the production was excellent as was the cast.
Wonderful production EXCEPT that the last five minutes were not broadcast where we were. Frustrating. I think I know how it turned, but we didn't see the end. Electrical cut off.
I'm new to the Opera scene. This production left me craving to see more operas. The singing was breath taking. Loved the acting, so believable. The scenery transitions were cleverly done. Our screen quality and sound were good. Bravo, Bravo! I'll be back for more Opera.
the singing and acting were extraordinary. A memorable performance
Beautiful production, worthy of the Met! Have seen 3 prior versions over the years, this was the best.
Terrible picture quality. We could barely see the actors in some scenes. Poor sound engineering as well.
excellent singing and the story is quite intense with love and murders and drug abuse
Great background and interviews with the cast.
Not an opera fan per say but this was a great experience great singing, dancing, orchestra, moving presentation of Porgy and Bess.
Our first opera...but delighted with it
My first real exposure to opera, Wow! The behind the scenes action made me understand what an undertaking it must be to put on a Metropolitan Opera production.
Must see for yourself!
Great score wonderful singing
A beautifully done performance and an wonderful cast! Beats heading down to NYC.
Performance was great. Transmission stopped 10 minutes before the end. Bad!😞
I love seeing operas from the Met in NYC. You can see the faces of the singers, which adds to the emotional effect.
Wonderful singers and choreography.
