FROM THE WEB: On two views of one performance — part two

Recently I posted (HERE) two diametrically opposed reviews of a performance of Der Rosenkavalier by the Metropolitan Opera in New York City. Here’s a LINK to a lengthy but fascinating set of reviews and comments about a recent presentation of La Traviata at Lyric Opera of Chicago. Click on the thread to the reply from Neil Steinberg to see the lengthy series of comments.

For what it’s worth, I thought similar comments could have applied to this week’s NBC telecast of The Sound of Music, as well.
