Met "Tosca" Opens to Boos

In today's Washington Post: "The Met's Twist on 'Tosca,'" by Anne Midgette.

Other opinions: Anthony Tommasini, in the New York Times, didn't like it either. Manuela Hoelterhoff, in Bloomberg News, hated it more. And Mike Silverman, in the AP, thought it was terrible.

Edited to add:
And how could I miss Opera Chic's take. She liked it better than anyone else.

Edited to add: Another voice heard from: Martin Bernheimer in the Financial Times.
James Jorden (aka La Cieca) weighed in in the New York Post.
And Heidi Waleson's review ran in the Wall Street Journal.

"Tosca" will be broadcast live in HD on October 10. Buy your tickets now. They may be easy to get.

Delicious controversy. I'd be intersted to know from where in the house the booing came.
