Lorna already said she liked it, and so did I. There was a time when the Met Opera orchestra was one of the weakest around, but now it's ranked as one of the best. About the same thing happened with the Met chorus. Maybe now they'll get around to working on the dancers. I agree the choreography was outstanding, best I've ever seen in an opera.

I do like Susan Graham's voice, so rich and resonant; she was a wonderful Dido. The longest role in Les Troyens is Aeneas, the Met debut role for Bryan Hymel. He never faltered once that I could tell; I thought he was excellent. I'm glad I got to see this opera.

Only one regret. That marvelous Trojan horse -- I wish it had been onstage longer.
