<<< << -- 5 -- Robert Hugill LITHE AND MUSICAL
Bruno Campanella led the Royal Opera House Orchestra in a lithe and musical performance. The opera never felt rushed, but Campanella never let things drag and never seemed to egg the performers on to bravura for the sake of it.

This was one of the most enjoyable evenings in the Royal Opera House that I had had for a long time, one where all aspects of the production seemed to be in tune.
