This is what is destroying opera. IT IS EVERYWHERE! THe Met, La Scala etc. These fake artists and especially the directors who are hiring them. Here is what happened. Just after Gerard's (Marco Vratogna) first aria, some of the people in the upper rings started yelling and booing and shouting "verguenza"("Shame!"­)because he seemed to be mic'd. There was a loud feedback -he would turn around and it would sound the same as if he was facing forward; some sound coming from the left and some from the right and it was reverberating. So they were pissed. Then, Fiorenza Cedolins (Maddalena) came in the first scene and she seemed to be mic'd, too. The audience didn't stop booing, and then the conductor paused the performance and the curtain came down. Then Cedolins herself (THE FAKE) came out and said in broken Spanish, "excuse me, we can keep going or if you'd like, we can all go home." Then she talked with the conductor about what to do. There was a pause for a few minutes, the radio host tried to kill time with the synopsis of the first act (which he had already given...) while they tried to figure out what was going on. So someone came on stage and apologized for the "technical difficulties," said that they were going to start the performance from the beginning; and that things were straightened out. And the performance continued. Later, Marcelo Alvarez, who had already been having a rough time in the production, pulled out after the second act and was replaced, prompting another announcement. WHAT A BUNCH OF DISGUSTING IMPOSTERS!!!!!! After the end of Gerard's aria you can hear them yelling "quitad la amplificacion!" ("get rid of the amplification!") and then "van a matar la opera!"("you're going to kill opera!"). Then, just before the two minute mark on the mp3 they get more heated, the performance stops, Cedolins comes out (wasn't too difficult for her to find a microphone apparently...), then they pause for a while, then a few minutes later they start up again.
