This shows where "sensitivity" leads to censorship. I am all for being sensitive, BUT freedom of speech wins. It is nice to see this debated in Germany. It is nice to see an opera staging choice debated in any nation. Hopefully, someday, the US will catch on to making opera current.
Even if pushing the envelope may wind up offending, the pushing is not wrong. It is needed by open and free societies.
