I really enjoyed the show! Costumes, singing, music, and viewing was all brilliant!! Lucrezia's voice as well as the lead player's voices were strong and vibrant. Some of the secondary players could have projected a bit more.

Wonderful performance. Good seats for the price. An opera lover's opera. The lead singer, Sondra Radvanovsky (who alternated with Renee Fleming) was marvelous, as were all the leads. She brought down the house.

Excellent production. Cast (without R. Flemming) was still outstanding. Seats were as promised. Without Goldstar I wouldn't be seeing as many operas as I do.
