Anyone go to Opening Night at the Met?

I did, and let me say right now I'm a big fan of the HD transmissions, but what I want to know is this:
in discussing the upcoming Thais, did Thomas Hampson or did he not describe the plot, for all intents and purposes, as a conflict between Good and Evil, with the side of "Good" being represented by .... well, the freedom-loving prostitute, and "Evil" being that mean ol' buzzkill "fundamentalist" (that word was actually used,) priest?
Alas, here's no rewind at the movies....
But that seemed to be basically what he was saying.
Anyone know?
