Had a discussion this morning with others who saw it...agreed that the set, while versatile, was pretty boring. I think it's a stock set they use for a lot of things. I think I remember it from Trovatore. As for the acting, well, there is only one statue in the cast...everybody else gets to chew scenery.

And one of the people I was talking too did note that there seems to be a lot more facial expression with those enormous closeups. I thought the Zerlina handled herself very well, Masetto not so well.
