Down for the count

“The battle of the sexes ended in an upset the other night in Le Nozze di Figaro. No, nobody rewrote the libretto of Mozart’s 1786 opera, about a countess and her maid joining forces to teach a randy count a lesson. But the casting of the Met’s revival was so lopsided that the golden-voiced men easily won sympathy over a gaggle of screechy sopranos.” [New York Post]
