"But the real story is how Tosca reacts to this new reality.
She remains vapid and jealous during the first act but it is only her
confrontation with Ailes/O’Reilly (read Scarpia) that her moral compass
starts spinning".

DO YOU NEED A STRONGER INDICTMENT OF THE IDIOTIC EUROPEAN "REGIETHEATER"
CONCEPT THAN THE ABOVE SENTENCE?

Cadenhead also writes:

"America’s backwardness in this art means that creativity in opera
production is entirely a European function".

SUBSTITUTE "TRASH CREATION" FOR "CREATIVITY" AND WE'RE IN BUSINESS.
