Just in: Hungary bans Billy Elliot as unChristianmain
The Hungarian State Opera has, on orders from Victor Orban’s (pictured) government, taken off the musical Billy Elliot after 15 performances.
The reason: ‘all public bodies are obliged to protect the identity and Christian culture of Hungary.’
Billy Elliot is the story of a boy from a mining village who wants to be a ballet dancer. Some of the dancers he meets may be gay.
