Bellini La Sonnambula Royal Opera House

Bellini La Sonnambula at the Royal Opera House reviewed HERE in Opera Today :

"....a young girl sleepwalks into a stranger’s room, where she is discovered by her fiancé; disbelieving her pleas of innocence, he jilts her and plans to wed another; but, she is vindicated when she is spied on a nocturnal wander, and the lovers are reconciled. However, the wafer-thin text is more than compensated for by the composer’s ravishing score and reams of gorgeous melody."

But the staging is "psychobabble".
