    They’re called braces in the civilised world.

  • Karl says:

    What kind of Otello doesn’t wear a belt? A white one. Maybe he should wear a spacesuit. Why not make an outer space Otello production?

  • Petros Linardos says:

    Aha, yet another Eurotrash production. How was the music?

  • Paul Brownsey says:


  • Sue Sonata Form says:

    That’s because the audience has to suspend disbelief!!

  • Leporello says:

    And what kind of Otello doesn’t look like a Moor? What’s next – a skinny Falstaff?

  • Philip B says:

    Are we not there to hear him sing?

  • Maria says:

    You mean braces, Norman, if you’re British! Women wear suspenders!

  • Jackyt says:

    When I read your headline I expected him to be in drag! Now, that would have been a worthy headline! It’s usually old men who wear braces to keep their trousers up.

  • Glerb says:

    Presumably one who wants to keep the waistline of his trousers at a decent height to flatter the figure. Or who wears the costume he’s given by the designer.

  • double-sharp says:

    “It’s just a jump to the left….”

  • Janice Choate says:

    Jonas Kaufmann can wear anything, his voice still thrills.
