Having just seen -- and heard, and enjoyed -- the transmission, I thank you, volcanohunter! Though the scale of the resources lavished on this production itself could distract sometimes. Ah, what the advanced countries can do! *sigh* (Nice of them to share it with us, though.)

Oh, gosh, it was very beautiful indeed. I believe this production was first presented by the Canadian Opera Company last autumn, and the opera house in Toronto is a good deal larger than the one used in Aix. I actually wondered how well those marionettes worked in a theatre. The production almost seems made for television, the closeups allowing the viewer to delight in every detail.

I'm really dying to know: how does one flood an orchestra pit? And how can the singers be persuaded to sing in the water?
