Fabrication, the conclusion?

Perhaps it's just coincidence (and, given the paper's chronic financial woes of late, not a surprising one) but the New York Times has bought out the reviewer (Bernard Holland) who couldn't be bothered to attend the OONY Gala he reviewed.

Holland never showed signs of actually enjoying opera -- and in fact seemed to resent much of the standard rep -- so perhaps this is a relief for him as well.

Absolutely no axe-grinding, please.
