I've been, alright, and I've even liked a lot of what I've seen. But for 
intelligent audiences, great art doesn't need to be made relevant and 
"approachable," and sometimes regie productions are really dumbed down 
productions.

You understand that this post gives the impression that you have not 
actually been

milieu"
was in 1963 at Bayreuth.
