Dead, Dead, Dead

You all know that classical music has been dying for years, right?

I concede that there are many troubled organizations and that the audience is getting older. But check out the photo at Life's a Pitch, which shows a long, long line of people who want tickets to the outdoor screening of the new Metropolitan Opera production of Das Rheingold. Unless we just stumbled onto the set of True Blood, those folks are all alive and well.

P. S. I guess Levine is conducting tonight.

I would love to attend the complete cycle scheduled for 2012, but I have a feeling tickets will be expensive and scarce.
