My favorite critic, Alex Ross, continues the noble project of demystifying "classical" music by simply reporting on it. His most recent column documents a ticket-price experiment--how much good music could he see in a week with a budget of $100?--that resonates with recentdiscussions of pricing for theater. How much great theater could you see in New York at that budget?
My favorite sentence from Ross's piece:
When there’s booing at the Met, it usually emanates from the Family Circle.
