“Well, you know, originally, it was people just like you who went to opera, with casual clothes, they took food, they took alcohol, and they threw things. Anyway that was a long time ago. Then rich people took over the world of opera, with their fancy dress, and they took the soul out of it. They made it something that it is not.” – Reginald Paget, The Quartet
