    I could not connect the story synopsis printed in the program with the action happening on the stage. The only thing I gathered was which character was which. I couldn’t understand the pronunciation, and because of this, couldn’t piece together the story by listening to the words being sung, which the poetic libretto didn’t help with. I couldn’t make an opinion about the opera excerpt, because the story was lost on me, and, imagine, most of the audience as well. If you had printed a synopsis of the action as it happens on the stage, we as an audience would have been able to make an assessment of this new work of art. It was a frustrating 30 minutes.
