beautiful. renee shows what a wonderful actress she is. interesting how non-grand opera plot this opera has. final development life like.
just so overwhelming. pure perfection. enough to make you look over how insane the basic premise is, especially the dual love stories. you have the pure selfless love of lui completely run over by calaf's all consuming passion, born of a single look across a crowded courtyard, of a cold blooded murderer who spends most of the opera wanting to murder him.
