Love the diverse cast and the fact that they have a live orchestra onstage! I think it’s a great way to really make the music in the piece (and there is a lot) come alive. 

It’s a very vibrant color pallet (the golds, the green, check out Constanze’s dresses!) and an interesting architectural set design. Is that a hydraulic orchestra pit?

I wonder if the opulence of the costumes/lighting paired with the harsher set and “modern” clothes of some of the cast and musicians is meant to highlight the genius/mediocrity theme of the play. 

This is one of my favorite shows, I wish I could go see it!
