How was your experience?
We thoroughly enjoyed the new opera, especially Mary, who looks and moves like a child but has the most amazing and beautiful mature soprano voice. Colin had a great voice, and Denkan, his mother and sister were all great. The sets were well done, and sometimes the moving video on top of the background scenes was a bit distracting and other times were quite effective. Thought the music was really lovely and orchestra was fantastic. Despite so many children in the opening night audience, they were incredibly well behaved, which I would interpret as being engrossed in the story. I'd recommend it highly to all ages.
