I went to La Donna del Lago and, frankly, didn't think too much of it. The opera seemed awfully static to me, and the sets, costumes, etc. were OK, I guess, but nothing special. I'm glad I went, though, for two reasons...Joyce DiDonato and Juan Diego Flórez. I'm amazed such things can be done with the human voice.
Today, I loved the operas and hated the productions. Good singing again. Misguided productions can't hurt Cav and Pag.
