See it if You like someone who sings arias from Carmen, soul , and Broadway music very well. come 30 minutes early to hear delightful piped music.

Don't see it if You don't like singing.

The final robe costume worth the price of admission, too bad there was no story to go with it?, Indulgent, Slow, A one hour audition for the met?, Great singing

See it if "A Charmed Life" should add (Mostly) to the title because the Diva's story did include a dear friend lost to AIDS. Somehow, no #BLM moments?

Don't see it if Not an Opera fan? And if so, U better like CARMEN cause a good chunk of the show is dedicated to it. Casting peeps for The Met call 4 comps?
