    the opera was interesting
    but some music too loud as also the megaphones.
    The mens' costumes seemed odd; and I would have liked Lady Bracknell to be dressed as a woman.
    As The Times critic wrote, what was the point of the holding hands cast snaking around back of the orchestra?

      Bryan Diamond, it's unclear if you'd have wanted the basso profundo who sang Bracknell to be dressed as a woman, or to be one? The latter would have been, of course, impossible; and what would the former have achieved?
