      Seabreeze! Wonderful voices, wonderful orchestra and conductor, and the music, of course,i is divine. Just dont let the digital tech and clever cameras take over—getting too close! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/08/23 Full Review James M The Metropolitan Opera live simulcast was a pleasure to watch at Kaufman Astoria. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/06/23 Full Review Pam The Opera itself was presented in perfection. But I have a complaint about the sound quality in Regal North Hills Movie Theater in Raleigh. The sound inside our theater 10 was low and flat. During the Intermission, I went out and reported it to an employee, who said someone was already looking into it. Well, afterwards, the sound was somewhat louder but still flat--no one adjusted the graphic equalizer and there was literally no bass. Very annoying, as if classical music doesn't require full sound! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/05/23 Full Review Lynn L It was delightful: funny, inventive and full of wisdom. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/05/23 Full Review Virginia C Loved the voices and orchestra, but prefer the traditional costuming and staging. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/04/23 Full Review Candice R Delightful! Refreshing! Unique! Like no other opera experience! I generally don't enjoy modernized operas, but this employed so many unique and artistic methods to tell the story, that I was consistently surprised and engaged.
