red_shoesSo, who do you think said this?

It is unfortunate that for the Met’s first production of ATTILA they could not do a more “conventional” production.

I know from having been at rehearsals that the director gave the singers nothing and the set prevented them from doing anything dramatically. The production is a fiasco!
