An interesting conversation (or fight) starter from author Norman Lebrecht on his “Slpped Disc” blog. When directors create hated and despised new productions, does anybody else benefit from their “folly”? Lebrecht says “yes,” but I’ll let him tell you more of his theory on that. Perhaps I should go back and check the conductor’s reviews from our notorious “pink” Figaro. Or, perhaps I should leave well enough alone, eh?
