Looking at Calixto Bieto's calendar (www.operabase.com) I want to share 
the following observations:

a) He is not appearing in any  top drawer  European Opera Houses 
(Scala,Covent Garden, Paris,Vienna Stats Opera, Liceu)

b) No A-list  singers appear in of his productions ,except for Marcello 
Giordani

Draw your own conclusions

Miguiel de Virgilio
