How was your experience?
The lead singers, two sopranos and a tenor, are outstanding. That is especially so for the title character played by Sondra Radvanovsky, a world renowned performer. Her role is large and she has several long arias and duets that enable fantastic "bel canto" singing. The rest of the cast does in a fine job in supporting roles. The main drawback is that it seems to go on too long, particularly in the second half. The set can be distracting at times although that is pretty minor and one soon gets used to it.
