Emmanuel Church was filled almost to capacity for the concert performance of Genoveva. The cast, chorus, and orchestra were all excellent. The music is good, but never really memorable. The music and drama were never boring, but at the same time never really presented anything especially moving. The pleasure came from hearing good singers with pleasant voices sing pleasant music with good articulation of the text. The opera is about an eighth-century German countess falsely accused of adultery while her husband is away fighting the Moors.
