Intense, Ambitious, Entertaining, Great staging, Great singing
See it if
you enjoy great music-Puccini; great staging-Zefferelli by a talented cast with huge ensemble scenes-the Met Chorus, all sung beautifully.
Don't see it if
you are'nt up for a long eve, as there are two lengthy intermissions and lots of subtitles to read, or you dislike culturally dated shows.
