  • The Apocalypse is upon us (at least upon us opera fans)

    http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/ ... =2&sq=Cosi

    In a sign of the times, even Mozart is now being updated for the “American Idol” age. A coming production of his opera “Così fan tutte,” . . . will ask audience members to vote at intermission for which characters should be married in the opera’s final scene.
    You vote with your cell phone, and at the end, they'll modify the opera's ending if necessary, and perform it in accordance with the vote. :roll:

      If enough people call in, will they promise not to ever put it on again?

        At first glance, I thought this was a Matt Marriott thread. Has he been banned? No sign of him lately. Darn.
