I’ve heard people laugh during an opera performance right when a most tragic event is happening on stage. Since I’m under the apron, I can’t see why they are laughing, but sometimes I can guess. (When Romeo and Juliet take eons to die and sing through it all, it does get a bit ridiculous.) Mostly I appreciate people holding back. But I guess some just can’t help but let out a snicker … or even a guffaw.
