Acting, singing, casting, and orchestra were all terrific—however the script was prett simplistic. It was weird to hear such basic lines being sung by opera singers.

Crackles with theatricality, never a dull moment. Musical score is more a piece in the mosaic than the main attraction as with some other operas, but it serves the story and characters.

I thought that the libretto was sometimes a little thin, with commonplaces as a kind of recitative. I loved the mixture of voices that occurred in other places that might have been like that. The singing was impressive, and the scenery was great.

A new opera in English commissioned for the Met based on a novel of the same name. Exceptional in every way.

Production was magnificent. The music, however has no 'songs' - no melody and no rhythm. If you like so called 'contemporary' music, you might like this. The singers sing dialogue using intervals with nothing lyrical for 3 hours.

Beautiful music, inventive staging. Isabel Leonard was simply to die for in the title role. Christopher Maltman was superb, as well.

I'm not usually a fan of atonal music - but this was so compelling! A visual delight - seamless scene changes - intriguing story - musical mastery.... and then, the final scene was a lovely and rare look at redemption and restoration.
