Opera chief wears Stalin t-shirt for his curtain callmain
The Berlin opera boss Barrie Kosky has created a stir in Zurich by taking his curtain call in a t-shirt emblazoned with the unmistakable image of the young Stalin (that’s before he murdered 30 million Soviet citizens).
Kosky, who was directing Franz Schreker’s Die Gezeichneten, has refused to comment.
Would he have worn a picture of the young Hitler? Was he just trying to grab a headline?
History is not a toy, Kosky.
