Spiritual Journey ...

I hesitated before deciding to see this opera. I knew the grim story would affect me. It was a rewarding and enriching experience. The music is haunting, and yes, reminiscent of Gershwin at times; the English libretto flowed well, which is not always the case, as English is not a terribly lyrical language; all the characters suffered in their individual ways, and the music carries us along to understanding all the varied points of view in a gentle, deep manner.
