"Every summer there is a opera presented in an open air quarry in St. Margarethen, Austria. In 2004 the opera was Aida. There was a huge set and cast including horses and 3 elephants. I thought the singing and conducting was excellent. I was disappointed that the orchestra was pint sized and the trumpets really let us down in the triumphal scene. Also, the ballet, where girls in swimsuits sacrifice a cute blond boy in a bikini, is best forgotten. But a very stirring third and fourth act left me with quite a positive impression. Excellent audio and video, also."
