Queen of the Night NAILED it. Puppets were fabulous, Papageno was comic, sets were delightful.

Wonderful opera production. Unfortunately, the staff where I saw this were unable to start the broadcast on time. A delay of about an hour decreased our enjoyment considerably.

The scene of the Queen's evil doings being vanquished has been deleted entirely, which ruins the storyline. After the Queen makes a deal with the dirty bird to betray the King, the editing takes you abruptly to the final to scenes. Very unsatisfying omission, yet the music was wonderful

I hated that it was translated and dreadfully bowdlerized. It was unrecognizable.

"An absolute visual delight, even with the change in the storyline but the music was richly delivered.

Beautiful production. However, very very dark in the projection. Most background detail was lost....as this production is known for the visuals, not a good thing. Had the same problem earlier this year with a Fathom Events showing of Vertigo. If Kim Novak had not been wearing the white coat in the Sequoia forest scene, the screen would have been blank. The theatre said that they could do nothing because that was the print they were sent.
