James Oestreich’s review comments that the production “though serviceable and mostly attractive to the eye...breaks no new ground....” and points out that there were many empty seats.  Well, were there more empty seats than usual?  And what scope does this opera offer for new ground anyway?  Must every production break new ground?  Perhaps that’s the role of contemporary works.  If Boheme, regardless of cast, sells more tickets than l’Elisir, with a superb cast, does, it could be that Boheme has a certain appeal—musically and emotionally—that l’Elisir does not.
