Nastiest opera ever – first pictures

Prepare to be disappointed.

The press shots from the premiere of Georg Friedrish Haas’s Bluthaus at the Schwetzinger Festival, an opera whose title and pre-publicity announced that it would ‘wallow in blood’, are about as sanguinary as an Anglican vicar’s office in Lent.

The review headlines are full of inflammatory references to the Kampusch and Fritzl rape/abduction cases and some local dignitaries stayed away, but this looks to have been a fairly orderly night in a small town in Germany.
