What’s Opera, Doc?

Head on over to the Deutsche Oper

Airport-style scanners will be used to search people attending a production of a Mozart opera in Berlin featuring the severed head of the Prophet Muhammad.
Security has been tightened because of fears of a Muslim backlash against Deutsche Oper’s version of Idomeneo.
Jesus, Buddha and Greek god Poseidon are also decapitated in the show.

I wonder if they will be serving ham sandwiches and danish blue cheese during the intermission?

  1. Look on the bright side. At least they have the nerve to put on the show. That’s a change from a few months ago.

  2. Pretty much sounds like Baghdad on any given day.

  3. Nightfly says:

    My church group is planning a riot and chanting about the cruel and grisly fate of Poseidon, the Stormbringer, Master of the Deeps, as depicted herein. We will burn cars, so bring marshmallows, long sticks, and fire-retardant mittens.

  4. (Oh Lord, I thought you said ‘Kittens’ there for a minute.)
