If the opera was disgusting in 1907, why waste funding money trying to present it 100 years later for the same societal and moral reasons? This doesn't make artistic sense at all!

Are our tax dollars wasted on this?

If you have not seen the Opera do not comment it was spectacular. The Opera company is not state or federally funded anyway. Clearly neither of the previoes posts understand s or appreciates art unless it is posters.
