It would have been a 5 star performance could I have seen the whole stage. The way the opera was staged was different from conventional staging. Half the action took place on the stage, the other half on two platforms very high up. That half...continued

I thought the animation was creative, but I felt like I was watching a movie, not a live performance. The music and singing were wonderful.

We had center seats in row R of the Orchestra. We could see well, but the sound was terrible. We could hear the women singing pretty well, but could not hear the men very well and could not hear the three boys at all. I enjoyed the animation,...continued

If you set aside the notion that opera is about the music, this was a great entertainment experience. Unique, wholly original, entirely visually engrossing, just not a production where you leave raving about the singing.

The concept was fun (putting the singers in an old b/w movie) but after 20 minutes simply exhausting. In 2D there can't be any chemistry between the singers, or between the audience and singers. Opera is supposed to be about singing! But I'm...continued

The evening was wonderful and the seats were great! Only disappointed that there was no lecture before the opera.
