Properly restrained booing

A podcast of excerpts from Katharina Wagner’s production of Die Meistersinger last year at Bayreuth had a lovely Prize Song by Klaus Florian Vogt and choral finale. The audience hated the visual aspect of the production. You only know that, though, because they waited until the music was over at the end of the act to start booing like a bunch of soccer hooligans.

This, I think is a mark of a civilized society.
