Critics don't help either. Someone wrote that "the entire audience jumped to their feet" at the end of the Met's opening night Medea this past week. There is no way he could have seen that literally happening, from ANY vantage point in the audience. Why do critics just propagate the idea that every single person in the audience must have hyperbolically loved the performance? (So much so that they literally jumped, as written?)
