I concur with Jon Goldbergs assessment, as I listened to last nights performance on Sirius.  Ades follows the film quite closely, while adding poems sparingly, mostly for arias.  I was quite impressed with how well the running river of sound from the orchestra treats the emotional imagery of the story.  The instrumentation is large, varied and imaginative and reflects the undercurrent of anguish, lethargy and impending doom of the characters with uncanny skill.
The singers and chorus performed the acrobatic, virtuostic roles with aplomb.
I look forward to seeing the live transmission of the production on November 18.
