Musically, the production was a success, but it was oh-so-hard to pay attention to it with all that going on. The Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, conducted by Hartmut Haenchen; soprano Christina Landshamer; tenor Tilman Lichdi; and the Châtelet chorus all offered standout performances, while mezzo-soprano Anna Stéphany and bass Darren Jeffery did a fine job. This is one production for which I would actually recommend buying a cheap sans-visibilité ticket so you could just enjoy the music.
