The Music, singers, score and conductor were wonderful beyond belief. 5/5. Whoever did the costuming had no idea what he was doing. A mosh of Elizibethan, Voodoo, and downright grimy. 0/5

I was not really too excited to see this, as I was unmoved by Adams' "Nixon in China" several years ago, and generally turned off by serial music. However, this exceeded my wildest expectations. The sets and technical work were outstanding, and the cast, especially Larusdottir, Bridges, and James were outstanding. But my highest praises are for the moving performance of Anthony Roth Costanzo in the title role. His soaring Counter-tenor was always heard above the orchestration and the other voices. I would certainly see it again! Thank you!
