I’m not sure why this production by Lonny Price is billed as “semi-staged” when it contains rather more staging than many other recent productions. It is highly polished and altogether very successful, although obviously tailored to showcase its two stars, Alfie Boe and Katherine Jenkins.
The biggest thrill of the evening came from the orchestra pit. The full-size orchestra did wonders with the fabulous orchestrations of Robert Russell Bennett, under David Charles Abel’s precise and inspired baton.
