Opera is evacuated due to bad smell
March 20, 2017 by norman lebrecht
The entire audience and performing cast were ordered to leave the building of Sofia Opera and Ballet last night due to a powerful smell that many described as ‘suffocating’.
In all, 650 people left the building a short way into the performance of Borodin’s Prince Igor.
No cause has been confirmed. The general suspicion is that the smell came from toxic cleaning fluids.
