Let's hope this will be the beginning only! The less musicians in the
opera, the better. Musicians should not be condemned to opera. Opera is a
reproductive medium, so tapes are by far more suitable to it and may
potentially bring down the costs of opera production to what it is really
worth...
For my country, were they are so stupid as to spending more than half of
the complete music budget on opera, it would be a first sign of
intelligence to replace musicians with tapes, and have money to spend on
real music production...
