It's a ridiculous opera, with some of Verdi's worst writing. There are tunes, sure, but - as Philip says - an entire opera of "rum-ti-tum" is absurd. Furlanetto was the only person on stage who knew what he was doing and sounded like right. (Let's give kudos to Wendy White, too!) But Furnaletto can't save an opera that needs 4 first-rate singers at the top of their game and a conductor - not a monkey - in the pit.


Yes, Wendy White always makes her mark in any performance...she was a fine Emilia in OTELLO this season, too.
