I really did not like it.

You're not alone.

I find the singing is ok, but the video gets a bit repetitve. I rather liked the idea (at least in theory), but felt it was trying too hard to get to the depths of the music (or rather the setting emphasized too much one aspect of the music). I found myself closing my eyes and just enjoying the music, which worked for me. I should mention that I had 'watched' this on youtube, where someone had inisisted it was the bee's knees. The thing that irritates me most is the occassional extraneous sound, which has no business in this piece. It's not opera!
