Last night's performance of Jenufa at the Met was brilliant.  Mattilla out
did herself, with a very nuanced, yet intense performance.  Dyska and all
the other singers were also wonderful.  The great Met orchestra was great!
On the downside, there were huge swaths of empty seats in all sections.  I
would guess somewhere near half the seats were empty.  I know Jenufa might
not be the easiest opera to sit through for the average audience member, but
it is sad that the Met cannot find a way of attracting more people to this
and other great, but difficult works.  Interestingly, the Kentridge Lulu did
quite well at the box office, so it can be done!!!
