I love opera, and enjoyed the experience however, there were some situations that detracted from the performance. While churches are notorious for echos, I wonder if some rearranging of singers and the orchestra couldn't have helped the performance overall. Then, with the addition of the Lyrical dancers, who were also quite good, our sight lines were almost obscured completely. Our seats were fine but, we couldn't see or hear much of the time. The other matter is that, initially, there was some confusion with the program. I had thought one thing when I bought the ticket, another was announced at the door, and a third was posted on a board. Overall, the walk to St. Paul's within the Wall was interesting, and the church was beautiful. We are glad that we bought tickets, but I was somewhat disappointed with the arrangement of the participants.
