The play has many interesting characters and is quite a spectacle. There is a superb rotating set, which is well constructed, even though it was a bit noisy. However, at over 4 hours long I found it a little too much, at times I was bored. After the interval I noticed some of the audience didn't come back!
I thought some of the scenes were too long or not needed at all. If this play was cut down a little I think it would have been a lot better. Don't see this if you're tired, you'll never make it to the end. This one is for the die hard theatre fans.
