    I totally disagree. We had beautiful tickets we thought. Seated Door 35 Seats 70 and 69. Could not see the park bench. Ballet was not good. Chorus and Conductor were wonderful. Set design was so unromantic – In fact it is truly a beautiful opera. Does not need the ballet and it would help if the performance showed some romance and beautiful. One of the worst operas I have ever seen. Or should I say – Did Not see!

    Instead of the love’s power and redemption, what Gluck wanted, we slog through an ugly story in modern setting with a temperamental bitch diva who ends up a zombie ghost as Orpheus runs off with his assistant. Maxim Mironov unfocused voice did OK with the high roll, but I think it would have really soared with a with a mezzo voice. Very disappointing

    Whoever designed the set was not aware of the audience view of it. A great deal of time is spent by singers on the addition left of the stage, that grew beyond the stage proper. Though I sat in a good seat from where I was I could only hear but NOT SEE the singers ‘ SO OBNOXIOUS. Designers should’THINK OF HOW THE PUBLIC WILL VIEW the stage. Besides, the geometric sets did Nothing to support by their visuals, the delicious, poetic music. Thumbs down who them
