Berlin opera chief survives horse fall

Jürgen Flimm, former intendant of the Berlin Staatsoper, has let it be known that he’s lucky to be alive, albeit walking with a stick.

Flimm, 78, fell off his horse while out riding on his farm in July. He suffered a double femoral neck fracture, underwent five operations and spent almost two months in five different hospitals.

The horse is called Pavarotti. No word on its condition.

  • Pavarotti compared singing to horse riding because in both one needs to know where the double fences are. I guess Flimm missed one.

  • Norman, am pretty certain if you’d been covering the sinking of the Titanic you’d be the only person asking after the state of the iceberg !!!
