Word on the street is that people don't like the Met's new Tosca, which premiered last night to loud boos directed towards the production team.
Much of this displeasure is aimed at director Luc Bondy who has put a contemporary spin on the production, making it rife with commentary about our current world.
And so continues the debate about regietheatre or as some call it, Eurotrash.
Does opera allow for high-concept productions or should it remain true to the plot?
Is their room for Tosca or La boheme in the present?
