I saw it today at the multiplex (Valley View Mall near Cleveland -- $24 to see something on a screen... yow). I liked it a lot, more than when I saw the premiere production at BAM. The final act, which I recall as being really static, with just the six characters sitting on beds, was really active in this production, with all sorts of things happening on and around the beds. I kept dozing in the first act, but the rest of it really kicked in.

Of course, I tend not to like, and thus attend, opera, so that might flavor my reaction differently from that of an avid opera fan.
