Frakenhead always has something amusing to say about opera as seen on the  
other side of the pond. He is in my spam box, but I seldom fail to read his  
tilted takes on conventional operas when they are given new "life" through 
the  genius of some genius. Ha!

"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.
