I have an identity problem. On the one hand I write about the international world of opera, or at least the parts that reach me. On the other I write about music in Sacramento.
Here in Colorado, only TWO theatres so far are showing the Met broadcasts - one in Colorado Springs (60 miles south of me) and another on the west side of Denver (about 25 miles away). I'm headed to see Puritani tomorrow, so we'll see how crowded it is. When I called yesterday I was told that they still had 211 tickets remaining out of 268, which I found hard to believe - esp. only 48 hours before the performance. Beginning with the next broadcast, a third Colo. theatre is being added, in the SE metro area of Denver and only about 8 miles from my house.
I just saw I Puritani at the Desert Ridge in Phoenix, and the sound was less than wonderful, unreasonably soft and sort of diffuse. Is anyone else having that problem?
I saw this in Sacramento, too, but there the problem was that the sound was too loud. It was explained to us that this was built into the technology and could not be locally adjusted. Complain.
