    Default The Opera House Documentary

    Go to the PBS website and watch The Opera House, a documentary on the old and the new Met, with a whole lot of 91 year old Leontyne Price recollections. She even sings.... and still sings in a very beautiful soprano sound!!!!! .https://www.pbs.org/video/the-opera-house-zvpfpy/

    Thank you so much. I've been wanting to see this since it was released.

    This just played on the local PBS channel. I have it recorded and plan to watch it over the Holiday. Looking forward to it.

    I saw it in the theatre last January. Interesting footage, especially of the Old Met, which was before my time.

    Neither on You Tube to be found.
    Vicious rumours are borne by madmen, spread by haters and accepted by idiots.

    I'm in Australia and I've got a VPN (which I set to the USA) and had no problem watching it.

    Install Tor (a browser with a vpn): https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en. Then run the address until you get a circuit exiting in the US (the exit point is what the other side see as your origin end-point of the internet line). With tor, the exit point will be one from a variety of countries and getting one within the US may take a few tries. That's the way to watch geolocalized stuff. The download will be slow, so be patient.

    Simply wonderful and historical video with Queen Price as a highlight. She still has a good voice and her charm seeps right through the screen.
    Lucky were we to have her in our lifetime.

    Wonderful stuff, love the lucid vibrant Miss Price at 91 still full of life and respect for the art of opera......

    A bit too much R Bing tooting his own horn for me, surely the MET could have done better in 1950 finding a director (I have read his book)




    Love the scence of accidental design of grand chandelier for Lincoln Center and how everyone loved it.....
    Absoultely essential for anyone who loves the history of the MET to get the three Paul Jackson books......
