He sure liked it!

When Sunday’s performance came to a close, the audience leapt to its feet, and this was no obligatory Standing O. This “Idomeneo” — something like Ringling Bros. at New York’s Metropolitan Museum — is singular. Sunday’s performance wasn’t perfect, but it never let up, building momentum across its nearly four-hour running time, including two intermissions. Ever more glowing, this marathon exhilarated with its spectacular presentation, with the obvious enthusiasm of everyone involved — and with the perfect beauty of Mozart’s music.


  1. Who better to conduct Mozart than George Cleve? I am very glad to hear that these performances are going well. Best wishes to all of you involved with this production!

  2. Thanks, Cameron! I’m really enjoying it!
