making it under 2 hours.
I always though opera was long.

My understanding is that the score of the Luhrmann production is uncut.

I just saw an interview with Baz, he said not a note was changed.

My daughter's teacher plays in the orchestra for La Boehme, and she suggested seeing it, firmly.
My main problem with the film was sensory overload. Does this production have a similar feeling?

This isn't as different from a traditional opera production as all the hype would have one expect/fear. I heard an interview on NPR in which an Opera News critic voiced his fear, prior to opening night, that the singers would be "belting" since the show is on Broadway! It's nothing like that at all.

The orchestra was more than adequate, and they have 3 rotating casts to protect the singers voices.
I think the show is meant, as it states in the playbill, to be an intro to opera.
It needs to be viewed and reviewed as a Broadway show.

My daughter's teacher is really enjoying playing in the orchestra. She has also played at the Met.
