The Bieito Forza was originally a co-production between the ENO, the Met, and the 
Canadian Opera Company.  I don't know how the expenses were distributed, but I am 
sure there would have been some obligation to pay a share of the expenses even in the 
event of one of these houses cancelling.

The ENO premiere run received mixed reviews but I think on the whole there were more 
positives than negatives as far as the production was concerned (and a couple of the 
negatives were from reviewers with whom I disagree more often than not).  In any case, 
I prefer to decide on the merits of a production after having seen it first hand.  I am 
guessing that at least some of those who have posted on this topic here have never in 
fact seen a Bieito production.  In my experience, Bieito is an intelligent and perceptive 
director who is particularly good at Personenregie, and I have liked all five productions by 
him I have seen.
