    .....of the Met's Les Troyens.  BTW, about the Met's HD of Un Ballo in Maschera, you might be interested in reading this article where director David Alden comments on the tweaks for the HD-cast:

    'What was also changed, Alden said, was the lighting. ''That, for me, is everything. Light is the focus and narrative and the closest response to the music that one has to deal with. Obviously you have to change some of the lighting for the cameras, but this was much more than making an adjustment.

    ''What I don't like was that I wasn't included in the process at all. Everywhere else you have meetings with the director and are consulted about the process, and you can work with them to try to preserve what you had in mind. This was not the case here.'''

    Given how much the Met HD-casts have taken off, no surprise how it may be the tail wagging the dog more now.

    "It's only in books that the officers of the detective force are superior to the weakness of making a mistake." (Wilkie Collins, The Moonstone)
