Hi to all. I have been looking for a good working Opera forum, and am hoping this is it.
The Met transmission in HD of, Tales Of Hoffman, is coming later this month. I would very much like to get a preview glimpse of this opera in video. My intent is to be able to take a peek at the various singers in this opera, to make sure there are no distasteful ones that might ruin the watching of this opera for me. I am already well versed in this opera and have been in love with the Mets previous staging of it with Neil Schicof. Several HD operas back, by the Met, had a woman playing Ameris, that just about ruined the whole opera for me and I do not want that to happen again if I can help it.
I have tried this tactic before and never been successful. The Met site online teases you with ads about the opera but no scenes. Maybe someone out there knows more?
