Cannot tell you how much I enjoyed seeing Hamlet with SK in Saturday’s HD broadcast. When one is handed such a gift — a new opera and a new performer together — it makes one happy to be alive!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I watched ‘Hamlet’ at the MET HD broadcast.And needless to say Simon Keenlyside shined in the role of hamlet–A very powerful performance.I live in Vienna and know he will be performing at the Musikverein and Staatsoper in May.It will be another musical experiance thanks to Simon Keenlyside.

I saw my first HD broadcast this afternoon and discovered “Hamlet” and Simon Keenlyside. I’m a big fan of both.
Please let me know of any recitals in the New York Metropolitan area.

Thank you.
