I was actually discussing this opera with Olly Knussen about two years ago. Its apparently quite tricky and he was saying he didn’t hear it performed well or even accurately very often.
I’ve never seen the part, but wonder if that means it could use a little ‘editing’ to make it fit in the hand better, or if its just difficult due to meter changes and the normal contemporary music pitfalls.
I would say get the part ASAP if you’re going to perform it.
