NEW YORK - Hector Berlioz's epic, five-hour-plus opera Les Troyens has often been a magnet for problems - starting with the leading role, Aeneas, that brings tenors to grief. It forced Plácido Domingo to curtail his 1983 Metropolitan Opera run, and last month, Marcello Giordani bailed on the Met's current production, vowing to never sing the opera again - including this Saturday's noon simulcast in area movie theaters.
