This year I was able to obtain tickets further down front than the last two years and it really made a difference. The music was clearer and the solo and choral singing much more understandable. The evening started with a 45 minute discussion with Deb Lamberton from WETA Classical Radio. Her talk on leitmotivs and interesting facts was captivating. The movie in HD on such a large screen really drew you in and you truly felt you were part of the story. The orchestra and choirs did a truly magnificent job. Kaitlyn Lusk has performed at all three of the Wolf Trap showing and is stupendous. Her voice has matured wonderfully since I first heard her perform. Nolan Peters, the boy soloist, also did a great job. I’m truly sorry that this is the last of the live music film performances. Maybe, if we’re lucky they will do the extended versions next. If not, there’s always The Hobbit to look forward too.
