MINI REVIEW

Christopher Aldens controversial (there were some boos on opening night) production drains much of the passion and narrative logic from Verdis opera. The entire action takes place in a handsome old-school mens club, which makes no sense. Worse, the director has the annoying habit of giving characters distracting stage business while other singers are belting out their notes. A shame, because the performers are generally solid.
