Subtitles are great!  They certainly are necessary where the singing is
unclear, the opera unfamiliar, or where my language skills can't help me.
And generally, it makes the experience a little easier to enjoy fully.

BUT, now that I think of it, maybe the new audience section idea wouldn't be
so bad.  Every row would of course be chaperoned by a severe mistress of
opera manners.
