TRI Studios is far ahead technologically. But two years behind opera, marketing-wise

Remember the Grateful Dead Movie in theaters....same dealio NY Met has been doing since 2009.

Verdi With Popcorn, and Trepidation
By DANIEL J. WAKIN

FOR 400 years humans have stood on stages and conveyed passion through song. Great buildings were raised for them to perform in. The titled and the rich paid homage with cash and devotion.

Opera, that most electrifying and moving of the high arts, has remained remarkably unchanged in its history, adapting to bigger houses, electric lights, electronic stage machinery, the recording industry. It has persevered despite accelerating waves of new claims on our attention, from television to Twitter.

But now another force has emerged, which has the potential to transform how opera is produced and received. You can check it out at your local multiplex.

Thanks largely to the efforts of the Metropolitan Opera, hundreds of thousands of people worldwide are seeing live opera performances in movie theaters, and many others in repeat showings. A dozen other important opera companies are now sending out broadcasts of their own.

I have to disagree with the statement "this isn't the wave of the future". Yeah you don't get the crowd interaction but think how much money you'll save over the long run. Stay a weekend in NYC to see 2 shows, $400 just for the hotel unless you cheap out and that's not including your ticket price, beer and travel expense. So, I'm excited to see Furthur play on June 7th and in the future both live this summer and on TRI...plus seeing other bands play live on the web...
What would be the answer to answer man

I was just thinking down the road(although al we have is today) an elderly Mr. Weir and Mr. Lesh bringing a live concert into my home. Shakin' them old bones! I just love that they are creating "Ramble" type places out there above San Francisco.Wishing you both "grate" success!

I'm excited for this!!
It's not a replacement for the real deal, but it sure is a great way to spend an evening, especially a Tuesday.

I think $19.95 is more than reasonable, what else could one do for that price that even came close? Nothing.

I really wanted to go to Shoreline, but all that traveling (since I just came back from San Francisco) plus I have out-of-towners til the day before) that all made it logistically impossible to even consider.

Viola, TRI comes along and fills the gap between shows AND I don't even have to leave the living room.

Sweeeeeeeet....so psyched!!!.)

we're all bound to have our different opinions on the price, but the fact that they didn't just mention it up front suggests to me that they didn't feel that proud about it themselves...
