The whole production was beautiful to watch and hear. The orchestra, lead by Anne Manson, was gorgeous, making every moment count. Costumes and set by Lorenzo Cutùli were perfect - colorful when needed, muted with a flash of color at times...Tosca's gowns were stunning. The one thing that I wanted to see though was blood. I know it can be messy, and difficult to work with at times but Scarpia is stabbed in the heart, and Cavaradossi is shot - there should be some blood and stage magic to portray that. Again, such a small issue - certainly not anything that others would pick up on, and it didn't lessen the wonder and beauty of this production. It plays through March 26th and if you have a chance, you should go see it. Gorgeous through and through.
