    I really enjoyed this opera, and Danielle was just outstanding!! I’d never heard her sing before, but she was just terrific!!

  • F. Scofield

    Although I’ve enjoyed classical music all my life I’ve never cared much for opera. But tonight Danielle de Niese pulled me into it. I loved her and then the whole production.

  • Eunice Han

    She is awesome!

  • Armond Gross

    I have seen many operas and stage plays. This is the first production I was sad to see the finale.
    I could have watched the tellie all evening. Danielle was superb as were the entire cast. I really
    enjoyed their performances.

    What a stunning, stunning creation: costuming, staging, and above all, fabulous singing. The Met has outdone itself! Thank you for letting us see and hear such a wonderful production.

  • V. Perk

    I am also not a great opera fan, but I found “The Enchanted island” fantastic. It was al stunning, the sets, the dancing and the singing. Thanks Met.
