Police in Gütersloh police say that the entire wardrobe of Lithuanian National Opera’s touring production of Turandot have been stolen while the company’s truck driver had a nap in a lay-by.

The company’s costume department is now working round the clock to clothe its singers in time for the show.


  • Doug says:

    But it’s Germany; the singers are always nude on stage. It’s supposed to represent the futility of repressive hegemonic capitalism in the face of superior Marxist principles or some hogwash like that.
