  • William Eisenberg

    Why is it that your site incorrectly lists La Cenerentola’s airing on WNET on August 15th at noon. There’s no such listing on Cablevision’s program guide for that showing.

  • Rita Farquhar

    Mr. Eisenberg is correct – the St. Pete Times TV guide does not show La Ceneretola on Saturday. Please let us know when it will be shown. Thank you.

  • K

    Please! Please! Let us know when this will be on in Clearwater FL./Tampa Bay Area. If I miss this it will be so upsetting.

  • Joan Carroll

    I loved this performance! The costumes seemed to be from the Edwardian era, is that correct? i wonder why that period was chosed.

  • Michael Mendelson

    Could your TV production people center those credits that were shown at the end of the Metropolitan Opera broadcast a little better.

  • Michael Mendelson

    Please let me add one more comment. The performance was excellent. Thank you for a wonderful presentation.

  • Neil Blackmore

    Unfortunate that the valet was so much better looking than the prince! However the singing was superb all around and it made for a very enjoyable evening.

  • Thoryke

    Love those angel wings!

  • Richard Le Clerc

    Wonderful fun! Dandini was fantastic, and one of the wicked sisters could have been a twin for Omaha’s own terrific Jill Anderson!

  • Jon Varga

    Absolutely superb performance! First-class all the way.

  • carmen r. smith

    Imagine!! In the comfort of my living room…I was privy to this MARVELOUS production. Thank you.
