“It’s not often operagoers leave humming the scenery, but that was the case Monday, when the Met hauled out Riccardo Zandonai’s Francesca da Rimini from the vault. With neither a top-drawer score nor particularly memorable performances on hand, Piero Faggioni’s lavish 1984 production stole the show.” [New York Post]
