Just back from Cav and Pag....in a movie theater (smallest in the complex) with an audience of about 8...all there on comps I think.
Production from La Scala made me appreciate the Met live telecasts even more. The singers were fine (none I was familiar with) and the the music was well sung, but the sound quality was poor and the staging was both odd and erratic.
Daniel Harding was the conductor (suspect Andrew is familiar with him!) He did well by the music, but the staging was awful. http://super-conductor.blogspot.com/2011/01/opera-telecast-review-pag-before-cav.html
