Quote For The Remains Of This Impoverished Decade? ... (Paging All Remaining Librettists And Composers ...)

"If the décor-mad Franco Zeffirelli set the tone in previous decades, [Robert] Lepage — who made his Met début in 2008, with a technologically dazzling, emotionally arid “Damnation of Faust” — now seems the presiding spirit."

Alex Ross "House of Style: A bumpy season at the Met" The New Yorker March 29, 2010.
