Le villi - think Giselle. It's a quaint opera about lost love and revenge from the underworld. Jose Cura as Roberto was powerful, emotional and hot-blooded. The opera provided a glimpse of the great works to come.
What was enjoyable? Jose Cura showing off his voice and acting skills
What was not enjoyable? A collage of lumber jacks in the style of Pierre et Gilles as the back drop Why?
