Defending the Living
The principal purpose of the Living Opera is to provide a venue for young singers in the early stages of their careers. It is a disservice to everyone to have judged this performance ["Debut a valiant effort," Overnight, June 19] by the criteria one would use for a traditional, established opera company. These are quite wonderful young singers, their bios are impressive and they are a pleasure to hear.
