How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Even Verdi can write a clunker. It's like trying to rewrite a bad musical that just never comes together. Plot made even less sense than Il Travatore and it certainly needed the Marx Bros. to liven up the broken up plot. Seats were too far back to really notice the non-action. Performances were very good but there was only one memorable trio and one aria for the tenor. At least it was half price.
