A critic, asleep at the operamain
We’ve received two reports that a well-known newspaper critic was seen asleep in the Grange Park production of La Traviata. We won’t name him, or link to his review, but the well-fed man must have been having sweet dreams because his review referred to Claire Rutter’s Violetta with a demeaning and altogether inappropriate porn-industry term.
That, in our view, was more objectionable than a little snooze.
