And it was ...interesting, but a bit patchy, I thought . It started with the death of a baby, triggering Orpheus and Eurydice's separation, which did start things off on a rather depressing note, and it took a while for the lighter side of the opera to kick in.
But it was entertaining once it did - the chorus, wearing tutus made of balloons, and dancing with a greater or lesser degree of enthusiasm, were a particular high point!
And Willard White, as a world-weary, lecherous Jupiter, was wonderful to hear.
Mary Bevan was a strong, angry Eurydice, full of rage in the 'Can Can' song.
