This is, imho the best performance of any opera I've ever seen. All actors are good looking people, acting great and singing beautifully. The staging and cinematography is fascinating. This is not a pathetic traditional staging like Levine, but a much more touching realistic appearance. The conducting is rapid and very much balanced, making it extremely interesting to listen to. (I never heared the fire music at the ending so balanced.) In fact, the whole performance is very well balanced. In the first place by the lack of flaws (cast, acting, conducting). So finally, this opera flows from start till end. The opera itself is perfect... an open ending. The only opera that that ends to satisfaction.
