The overture lasts, needlessly, for over 6 minutes......and then you have to sit through the elongated titles.
Many fair things have been said about this opulent production - no-one seems to mind the shocking shimmering costumes, the horrendous musical numbers and the downright rotten acting.
Shakespeare is still spinning in his grave at the vulgar liberties taken - Mickey Rooney, a child that deserved a good smack - annoying to the nth degree.
