Yes, even if there are surtitles; they’re a distraction. Moreover reading the surtitles makes you miss all the action on stage so I usually find it much more enjoyable to ignore them and listen to the music and watch the performance. For most opera’s lame plots, all you’ll really need is to just read a few page review of the plot. But then thats just me; someone else might like them.

Read the opera texts and stories before you go and then it shouldn’t bother you. I hate Operas in English. It doesn’t sound natural.

I dislike all opera, but for some rock opera. I tend to get sensory overload fairly easily.
