Opera, The Way It's Meant to Be Heard

The New York Times is reporting that New York City Opera (whose season opens up in just under two weeks on November 5th) has removed the amplification system that was installed in 1999.

We're happy about this, as one of the draws live opera has for us is the fact that what we hear is pure unamplified sound. We know that one day, as listening tastes change, opera will most probably be amplified but allow us to cling to this one tradition just a bit longer.
