I don't disagree with that. But the kind of thing I see on that page is exactly the kind of thing that has driven me off other sites. An example: the Lyric Opera changed their site last year. It now has very heavy graphics, to the extent that I cannot see all my upcoming performances in one place. It's resulted in a situation where rather than exchange tickets on the site, which used to be quick and easy, I now call the box office instead.
It is increasingly common for websites to use such large graphics (and don't get me started on infinite scrolling!) that it is difficult to find actual information. And it's the information that's important.
I agree with you on that mojosmon, same here in France where websites evolve, you have soooo beautiful (and heavy) screens but no more useful informations.
Sorry, I'm "not a native English speaker" though...
