We had no such problem in my cinema in Michigan.

The people around me, and I personally found the performance compelling.  Ades was masterful in his vivid writing for a huge cast undergoing a myriad of emotion and psychological degeneration in a constant, complex choreography.  
The cast was uniformly excellent in performing music full of virtuosic demands as was the orchestra playing instruments familiar to the opera house and those not so familiar, ranging from doors to tiny violins and of course the Ondes Martenot.
The more I hear from this composer, the more I enjoy his sound world.
