I did give it my undivided attention but ended up drawing the same conclusions as you did.  There was a lot of undistinguished singing throughout the afternoon and some eardrum-shattering high “C”s.  The major exception for me was Stephanie Blythe who sounded like the only one there with a healthy voice.  Her Principessa was demonically blood-curling. I will soon forget the rest of today’s performance.
Bertrand de Billy turned some lovely phrases trying to bail out this group and was enough of  presence to sustain my attention.
