Rolling Eyes First of all I would like to say how much I enjoyed Bryn's performance as Falstaff, his voice [and his personality] totally filled the arena. My only criticism of the production was, that the set, good as it was, necessitated so many changes which took up so much time that the overall performance ran about 20 mins late. These changes really broke the continuity of the production. In my case, as I had a coach to catch at 10.30, it meant that I had to miss the finale. When I went to Flying Dutchman at the same venue 2 years ago, although it had approximately the same running time, I made my transport with no trouble as the set was minimal and required only changing the positions of large screens. I would be interested to hear what other members thought of this set problem, and whether it applied to any other venues.

I'm pleased that you made the bus ok but it was a shame that you had to miss the end. It was 10.30 when it finally finished.
I too thought that the set changes really hindered the flow of the story. Was it just problems with the set?
Good news is that it will be on DVD so we can watch it whenever we like!
Best wishes
