It's Definitely a Matter of Taste, But...

Headline from The Hollywood Reporter email version:

"An American Tragedy: Yet Another Disappointing New American Opera"

Are there people who are still capable of being disappointed by opera? I mean, to me this is like saying, "A Productive Cough: Not As Much Fun As You'd Think"

But, hey... I don't like opera, so I'm a bad litmus test.

But people who DO like opera only seem to bitch about every new opera that comes along, so why do people still write new operas? Just slap on the powdered wigs and sing the old ones and make all the snobs happy, that's what I say.
