We can but hope that someday a real opera company visits Segerstrom Hall at the Orange County Performing Arts Center ("New York Exports 'Candide' to Orange County" by Martin Bernheimer, Jan. 22).
After the New York City Opera's nauseating "Carmen," we were subjected to its excruciatingly painful (opera??) "Candide."
Any company that forces me to agree with two out of three of Bernheimer's reviews will certainly never see another dime of mine, and will hopefully never be given the opportunity to fleece other unsuspecting victims.
