I cant take it… even if I could put up with the staging, Giordani just embraced the ladder while singing “Floria t’amo,” the acting is so over the top and dreadful that it is pure torture.  Will listen though…

    Ii looked at first like another Bondy-ish outing, but no, Baden Baden

    drab Cavaradossi.  What kind of regime this stagings depicts in the Rome
    of today or the near future - with a "Bonaparte" still at the gates, - is
    unfathomable.
