During the performance I kept seeing the flicker of cell phone lights from people evidently trying to read their programs. There were indeed some younger people among all the gray hair. But there also seemed fewer people after intermission. In a performance this good, the actual words might have been more captivating than the projections. Did these videos actually reveal anything about Haydn? Is it ever a good idea to be different just to sell tickets?
