Michael Attenborough - the talentless son of "Lord" Attenborough - has taken the sole decision to scrap the Almeida Opera Festival.

“Modern opera studiously avoids anything so old-fashioned as melody or emotion, which seems to me a contradiction of what music is all about.”

said Attenborough.

I searched on the internet to find out what Michael Attenborough has ever achieved in the sphere of the arts... sadly 'accident of birth' was the only thing I could find.

He is wrong to find the fault in opera specifically. It lies in the attitude of modern youth in general, who are inadequately and improperly educated.
