    Beautifully staged, sung and acted. This is not one of Puccini's major works, and its lack of heft struck me more this time than on previous viewings. Great social interaction of group members, which is what makes this such a special group of people.

    Steve, I can't tell you how sad I am to miss this as it is one of my favorite Puccini operas. I have to be at a board meeting tomorrow for CVNC. Hope to see you soon.
