Miriam (Siegmeister) Koren

I wish you had commented on the production, which was as dreary as can be, until the final scene. The scenes in the forest had no trees. The colors were all dark gray, black, brown - not even the one kilt (was that really Scotland?) had any color. The set was spare to a fault, leading one to believe the City Opera was short on cash. None of this helped the extended scenes where no action took place on stage; often a lone singer was reduced to pacing back and forth in an futile effort to breathe some life into the scene. If not for the dazzling singing, I would have walked out.


Basically I did not say much about the production because there was not much of a production to speak of...
