Talk about a prejudiced review!

Only twice did you actually comment on Grigolo's singing (Edgardo from 
Lucia and Werther) and both times you gave him absolute raves.  The rest  
of the time you were much more involved with his over-the-top 
gesticulations than with his voice and you never bothered to comment on 
his actual singing of Recondita Armonia and the Flower Song (of which you 
were much more interested in describing about how he mangled a rose, tsk 
tsk!)

You excoriated the audience for being enthralled with the performance (like 
you knew much better than those mere peasants), while you petulantly sat 
there trying to extricate every miniscule thing wrong with the concert 
OTHER than the one important thing -- the singing itself.
Whatta review!!
