Brevity and Leonora, Manrico, Azucena, et al.

The orchestra was excellent, the chorus was good, the sets were not missed, and all sounded fine or better at all times, except the poor tenor who had his moments (not bad intonation, just difficulty with sound). In view of everything, it seemed as though some codas were skipped, and so all finished at a very reasonable hour. We received more than our money's worth in Beauty and without subjecting ourselves to an endurance trial. It's been a while since we've attended a Trovatore. I've never thought that the sets add a thing.
