Director Deborah Warner will, I hope, take heart from this precedent. An imaginative treatment of a much-loved Mozart masterpiece, even if controversial, may find a more sympathetic reception from a different audience.
Perhaps Ms Warner should persuade Glyndebourne Touring Opera to take her Don Giovanni into its repertoire. I even live in hope that she might measure the reaction of the opera lovers of Glasgow against the louts of Glyndebourne.
