I assume you mean what is this all about, not my feelings about it.

In conjunction with her conducting debut at the Metropolitan Opera, Nathalie Stutzmann gave an interview in which she said (while discussing the raised orchestra for Don Giovanni) that orchestras in a pit (who can see none of what is going on on stage) become bored. Some/many/most/all of the musicians were insulted and started saying negative things about her demeanor and preparation while also asserting that they were not bored and loved making music as the Met Opera etc. The Met quickly demanded that she issue a mea culpa, which she did. (I have no idea how successful it was but agree with Chromey that it was a dumb idea and an overreaction.) I hope this helps.
