The Met’s Verdi Requiem is cut off by PBSNews
The Public Broadcasting Service of the United States sold its public short last night by cutting off the 9/11 Metropolitan Opera’s Verdi Requiem in many states a couple of minutes before its conclusion.
Apparently it was overrunning the scheduled time and some advertisements might have missed their slots.
Can anyone recall a similar dereliction?
UPDATE: In response to protests, PBS have made the complete performance- with cut-off ending – available free to view here.
UPDATE2: PBS say sorry, we screwed up
