Did anyone else hear some booing as the final curtain came down?  What
 was THAT about?

By the way: I have no problem with a baritonal sounding tenor as long as 
all of the rest of the goods are there and Kaufmann (so far) has got all the 
goods.  I cannot find fault with any of his interpretations and find his 
incredible diminuendos in a class by themselves. 
But in truth, he DOES sound more baritonal than a year ago.  It is a rich 
sound in a man but there is that missing "ping" that I happen to like in a 
tenor voice very much and miss in his voice.

Of course we could also look at Netrebko whose voice also has changed to 
a deeper, richer sound which, if she were a man, we would also be calling 
more baritonal.  It's not a bad thing -- just different (and quite beautiful).
