A justified rant. Small roles are still part of the whole and should be recognized and given their due. I doubt that any director of 
the Gelb ilk would listen to complaints about this. They see themselves as flawless.

Subject: THe Met 'dissing' singers not in major roles in HD broadcasts and elsewhere

My rant:

Why does The Met not even mention singers of smaller IMPORTANT roles in HD broadcasts?  This is often true on SIRUIS  broadcasts too. 

Saturday's Norma did not even bother to list the important roles of Clothilde and Flavio on  our printed sheets. 

These are fine young artists who work their tails off, show up at rehearsal and often sub for major artists in rehearsal. This has been going on from the beginning and it is WRONG and disrespectful. Grrr. 


When the credits are run at the end, why bother at all? No one can read that fast . 

To whom can we complain and campaign on their behalf?

Thanks
Suzanne in sadly smoky SF
