the Met production was really interesting if a little strange in places but that is Peter sellers for you. the ballet in the second act was brutual and sexual and not for kids or the faint of heart.
the cast was magnificent. amazingly believeable in their roles.
we all continue to enjoy the very informative interviews before the opera and during intermissions.
Thomas Hampson is one of the best of the interviewers. asks good questions and does not display his own ego.
