What I liked

The singing for me is the highlight as all the singers really used their voices correctly to move the story line.

What I didn't like

The shape of the room was the biggest obstacle. But the performers and director made it work as best as possible. Also, the lighting only covered half the room which was a little problematic but the lighting designer and director made the best out of that.

My overall impression

My overall impression is BRAVI to everyone. The story telling was compelling and seeing it in such an intimate space really let the audience pay attention to singers, the music and the story. I would recommend everyone to see this. Bravo to the composer and librettist.
