Oh, for fff’s sake: ‘An opera made of orgasms’

This is a promo by Stockholm’s Folkoperan (Volksoper) for its upcoming production of Turandot.

The company is trying to rebrand itself as the Stockholm F**koperan.

Seen first on Forumopera.

    Do they not like opera as it comes (ahem) in Stockers? They clearly love this sort of thing, but we knew that…

  • No opera is orgasmic if the voices aren’t up to the music. The guy actually singing at the end sounds like a lieder singer at most (and the pianist better not play too loud).

    And if you’re going to play with moaning on pitch, why not have the moaning actually be on pitch? That way the tune might be recognizable. It was almost at the end before I realized what they were doing.

    Anyway, anyone who buys a ticket based on this ad is going to be sorely disappointed when they get to the show and find out what it’s like to sit through Turandot.

  • It was a lively show, not especially outrageous (and little even simulated sex), a good shot at a scaled-down Turandot – and the packed audience was of all ages.
