La finta giardiniera at Glynedbourne

There was lots of skepticism around this very early Mozart opera (that's the one before Idomeneo). One can see why - the music is light, limited character development, and a somewhat chaotic plot. Hats off to Frederic Wake-Walker, the director who used movements and gestures to make the plot and music work. A strong cast coupled with Robin Ticciati's clear direction made the show work.
