This production is horrible, strange in many ways - performance, singing, costumes, stage lighting, conducting and stage directing.
Netrebko was bad as usual, spending no time studying and understand her role and coming up with a strange, inappropriate and incomprehensible portrayal of the role. Henry VIII was dressed and portrayed like a pirate king. Except Garanca, who was true to the role, no one else is up to the task. This generation is totally cut off from the past.
Get the Canadian production that has Sutherland and James Morris in it. It's a traditional production, well-portrayed and sung, authentic and suitable for the era.
