The revolution will be televised

Ah, finally a light begins to break: “60 Minutes is filming a long-planned segment on the Met, with the new production of Rigoletto providing a through line…. When [Michael] Mayer sprints down the aisles onto the stage to tweak a bit of business, he is trailed not just by a couple of staff directors with notebooks but often by a cameraman or two. A Japanese film crew has also been tailing him for its own documentary.” [New York Times]

    Will they take away the costumes of Tibbett and Warren and others from the display windows? Will they take away the Grand Tier restaurant and put slot machines all over the place so patrons can gamble during intermission? Will they have cocktail waitresses in scant costumes but looking like Moffo and Peters? Very peculiar. Is Cat On a Hot Tin Roof on Broadway taking place in Macau? Dear me.
