Bidding opens for Wallander: The Operamain
The Swedish detective serial is being turned into an opera by the University of Tübingen Collegium Musicum.
The music is by the Swedish composer Fredrik Sexten.
Casting has not yet begun for the summer 2016 production, but there will be no shortage of international baritones who want to audition as a middle-aged man fighting loneliness, drink, bordeom and dumb colleagues. No acting required, really.
