DOCTOR DEE itself is a knockout. I was much beguiled by the sometimes Glass-like music; very hypnotic and dreamy. The spectacle is top notch, too. I'd actually like to study some of the sketches, plans and photos from the design phase. It's spectacular yet not overdone; beautiful.
The cast (including some proper 'opera' singers-) was fine, with cameos by two splendid crows, who shamefully, were not credited, although they and their handler did appear at the end to acknowledge an ovation. All in all, jolly super.
