While not atonal, there was nothing melodic about most of it. The performances, especially by Wayne Tigges (the Dutchman) and Wayne Volpe (Daland) were superb. The orchestra was excellent and the staging was very modern but without compromising the integrity of the performance. Quite a contrast with the melodic Italian La Traviata we saw at the same venue a year ago.
