More intermiision than opera

This is a strange opera and I can see why it is seldom performed. The singers were wonderful, as usual, but it seemed the set was so complex that three long intermissions took up more time than the opera. As for the opera, the story seemed to be a collection of pieces of a life, largely unlinked, and it lacked any arias of note. Character motivations were largely nonexistent.

I enjoyed the performance. It was well performed in a wonderful production. The projection and sound was great.

Unusual opera but very entertaining. Great villain! Sets and costumes very attractive.
