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.
