Actually, no - not disappointing at fact judging by the huge in
house ovation, it looked and sounded like a triumph - similar to the one I
experienced when I was in house on the 28th.

Funny how the whole can be judged by the occasional and momentary
slip...  a little throat clearing, or a note not quite hit does not a
performance ruin....All the principals threw themselves into their roles
both vocally and dramatically and our "movie" audience in Ohio felt
compelled to applaud a compelling performance of a monumental work.
