I attended the Opera Il Trovatore by Verdi at the Solaris CineBistro in Vail yesterday. These are HD events broadcast to theaters across the nation. It was my first experience with this format and I loved it.
The opera was a little dark but the voices superb. I was amazed at the HD resolution on the screen. Plus, I don’t think one could find a better place to view the opera on the big screen. The CineBistro is first-class. The visuals were stunning and the sound crystal clear. In addition, the movie serves drinks and food to patrons in their seats before and during intermission. A fine way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
