A fun story and pretty good performance, but something kind of fell flat. According to the program, it was supposed to be really funny but it didn't quite reach its potential. I agree with another reviewer that some of the singing was difficult to understand. Even though they translated it to English, I still could have used some subtitles at some parts. Some of the performers were really in character and funny though.
The orchestra was exceptionally good and the venue is fantastic. And afterwards, you're right in the heart of North Park and can grab some food or hit the dessert place Heaven Sent Desserts like we did.
My husband is familiar with Rossini and the music, and I would say he enjoyed it more than I and would give it 4 stars. The third act was my favorite.
