It appears no one likes the opera.

I think I’ll stop here.

Well … OUCH! It’s one thing when one reviewer out there pans a new opera. It’s another when you can’t find even one reviewer that doesn’t pan it.

I wasn’t really thrilled with turning the movie The Fly into an opera. I found the subject just too icky. (Yes, I really wrote “icky”!) But still, one can hope that it would somehow work. According to these reviews, I suspect it doesn’t work. At all.
