    It would seem to me that the only reason Gelb would bring in Bieito to direct an opera is that he sees the amount of press his productions get in Europe, and that the Met could use some of this publicity.
    Surely the Met audiences aren’t clammoring for a Bieito
    Euro-trash production. The Met audiences are by and large and older crowd and I can’t see a Bieito show being a hit with them.
    Just my opinion…..
