  1. They should at least have deleted the passage in which you state Mortier had brought Spanish opera more relevance than it had during the last three centuries. (Quote: En los tres últimos años, Gerard Mortier ha proporcionado a la ópera en España más relevancia de la que ha tenido en los tres últimos siglos) This is simply a ridiculous statement, showing poor understanding of History of opera in Spain. Sorry.
    I am sure this will offend many Spanish readers.

    Politics and art do not “combine” well ! A real shame.
