The other joy of the NYC Golden Cockerel was Norman Triegel at the King. We saw it in Los Angeles. Sills was singing Queen Elizabeth in Devereau so we saw Carol Neblett in the Rimsky. I agree it is not a great opera, but it has grown on me over the years. We saw the Maometto and King Roger performances too and full agree with you.

I have read in a number of posts and reviews that the singers were miked in Jobs, however from my seat in the last row of the orchestra, they seemed no louder than any of the singers I encountered over the previous 4 evenings who had to sing over heavier orchestrations (if not electronic.). Since the performances are being recorded for a CD, is it possible that the mikes were present for this purpose and not amplification? I only noted floor mikes and not head or body pickups.
