It was great to see this exciting new opera on the MET stage. Singing was agile and met the demands of difficult score. Libretto was amazing – kind of Wagnerian stabrime with short phrases and some rhyme which allowed clear enunciation of the feelings and story. Staging varied from exhilarating effects to pedestrian and crowded blocking. (Lepage just doesn’t work well with actors.) Biggest gripe is the sound where I saw the show, at MAzza Gallerie in Washington DC. Often too loud, and not kind to orchestra.
