How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I loved the story of The Secret Garden and wanted to have it come alive for my children as well. The musical version of the story was so wonderful, I mistakenly thought that this would be similar, not understanding that this was a new work by the Opera. The music was hard to listen to, lacking in melody or anything to hum later. The story was made dull by a lackluster, emotionless libretto. It was mostly eye candy for us, which is kept us there to the end amazingly. I can't recommend this Opera. Sorry.
