Is it necessary?

On the Laura Ingraham Show, Raymond Arroyo reported that the Met's new season opener, Puccini's Tosca, features a very disturbing scene.
At the end one of the acts, the baritone who plays Baron Scarpia apparently simulates the sexual act with a statue of the Virgin Mary. When the curtain rises again, he is found caressing the statue.
We would never see this type a scene perpetrated with a statue of Mohammad. But, as usual, we Christians are fair game.
I cannot see how this is necssary in the name of art and must be offensive to many. One show I will be avoiding if it comes to the UK.
