Good music and good singing, but a limited range for the writing & orchestra in terms of mood and dynamic causes it to seem very slow. Some scenes are extremely long. Bravo to Will Liverman, Leah Hawkins, Hopkins, and Raehann Bryce-Davis-- fine singing & portrayals
Ambitious. Stunning. Groundbreaking. Don’t miss the rebroadcast.
