Oops, sorry for the double post. I agree with Ciesse, the HD broadcasts are purely wonderful!

I am so excited that the met is here in Tokyo but with $200 to $600+ price tag per performance, it is not exactly "affordable..." I suppose I will just grab a show in NY.

Kudos to the Met's HD broadcasts, btw. Great way to make the Met's wonderful & pricey productions more accessible country-wide.

Re: more enthusiastic response in Japan - maybe also to do with a culture in which it's less acceptable to be exuberantly, emotionally self-expressive in public.

Came to the post the same question as Patrick: please ask about City Opera, Brian, and don't take a slick well-wishing answer.

Do you have any thoughts at all you would like to share concerning the departure of New York City Opera from Lincoln Center?
