One of the best operas I have ever seen!
13 January 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

As a classical musician I surprisingly dislike almost all operas, however I like this for two main reasons: firstly the music and the tableau scenes work together perfectly to create the ambient atmosphere, secondly the concept is abstract enough to be a refreshing idea given that the story line is a couple of thousand years old.
