Opera Lovers RejoiceAugust 1, 2014By Antoinette L. (Murrells Inlet, SC)See All My Reviews"What a joy to recapture a moment in history from the Met. I recorded this over 30 years ago on VCR but over the years the tape has become, shall we say, faded and fidelity is often sad. However, now I can play it on DVD and relive the moment in time when I lived in New York and frequented the Metropolitan Opera. Truly a memorable program and a must for all opera lovers. To see it is to love it!"Report Abuse
