Lush score, Creative production, Great singing

See it if you like Puccini-esque soaring lyrical operas, directed with originality, color and whimsy (including puppets & wild costumes), a great cast

Don't see it if you're looking for a strong libretto, the storyline is rather dull and the dialog is basic, the whole thing never manages to fully take off.

Delightful

See it if into love and loss, while cruising in the Brazilian jungle. A great set and amazing puppets of natural elements. Romantic, sung in Spanish.

Don't see it if well... Act 1 was on the slow side, but Act 2 turned irresistible.

“There are reasons for its popularity—lush orchestration, ear-pleasing vocal lines, a romantic story—and as one of very few operas in Spanish, it’s a good choice for companies eager to attract Spanish-speaking audiences.”
