Rheingold, Boris, and Artistic Miscalculation at the Met


  1. Matthew Valenti says:

    Mr. Horowitz,
    Have you ever met anyone who greatly prefers to experience opera by listening to complete audio recordings at home as opposed to seeing the whole theatrical event in an opera house ?
    (I’ve always been one of those people)
    As an aside, Ernest Newman went one step further than listening to records: he used to say that the finest performances of The Ring he’d ever heard were in his own imagination, as he sat at home with the scores.
