Wonderful Production!!

I am so glad this came back as an encore production, I would have hated to miss it. The four leads were superlative in their roles, not just for their singing but their acting was top notch, too. The production by McVicar featured a revolving set that made scene transitions fluid and the sets added much to the atmosphere of the whole opera. My only negatives, and minor ones at that, was that the entire film seemed dark - was that a result of the filming instead of seeing it live? If so, it is something that would be nice to correct so that the entire viewing experience is A++++!! I would have also edited the pre-battle scene with the prostitutes and made the sex simulations a little less graphic, just seemed to clash with the overall tone of the production and added nothing. Other than these small points, I highly rate this production as a MUST SEE!

Absolutely incredible singing. Verdi's score is very difficult and all the singers did justice and more to the score.
