Entertainment Review
This article discusses some developments related to theater. The author says that the operatic stage is coming to be dominated by MoZart Wolfgang Amadeus. The debt to those at the Metropolitan and New York's City Center who keep Mozart present people among is, accordingly, incalculable. The only words vouchsafed to Mozart's Count at that great moment are, "Countess, pardon!" It is the music that tells people what this pardon means in human weakness and contrition. It is also true that there have been critics to find sublimity in the most banal verses of "The Magic Flute."
