Multi ethnic choruses, etc, are not limited to the Met...and while I am in favor of inclusiveness, I still think an occasional nod toward reality might be in order. A while back (a good while, actually) I remember seeing a production of Romeo and Juliet (the play) in which Romeo was white, Juliet black (NO PROBLEM WITH THAT-it works), but the kid was obviously adopted because the Capulets were white and Hispanic, respectively).
