Claus Guth's direction is clever, dark and perfectionist in its timing and elaboration of the characters.
Both acts ended in triumphs, but the ballroom scene in Act I was strikingly wel lconstructed, with sparklingly elegant dances and the trio "Protegga il giusto cielo" really sounding like a hushed, fearful prayer.
Anyone who wants to experience the power of opera must see this.
