This production is an abomination. It completely destroys the meaning of what Verdi & Piave wrote,
instead substituting the dreams & vision of the director. Mr. Gelb, we pay to see & hear Verdi, not the directors distorting ideas which were not what the story is about. The singing was magnificent. Hvorostovsky is the best Germont since Robert Merrill, perhaps better. Polenzani is becoming one of the great lyric tenors of our age. His singing was gorgeous. I have never seen a poor performance by Dessay and this was no exception, even if she did miss a high C in the 1st act.
