Movie Reviews

Waste of time and money
George B. Laurent | florida | 10/26/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Neither synopsis nor background material are provided. The music, staging and performances are attractive. The opera is apparently about complex interpersonal relationships. Since I could hardly understand a word of what was sung, even though it was in English, throughout the opera I didn't know what was going on! Had there been subtitles I would have been able to decide wheither the action is really relevant or is much to do about nothing. Operas in English need subtitles in English!"
