I enjoyed it very much. Robert Carsen's production focuses on the farce elements while not neglecting the darker shadows of von Hofmannstahl's libretto. The staging is deliriously and deliciously detailed. A strong cast of singers who for the most part can act and some are so good they fully embody the characters. I also liked the conducting. Lots of boos last night for the production team interspersed with bravos. The production should work well in live HD broadcast in May. Highly recommended.
