Vienna Opera bans ‘bravos’main
The latest Covid rules on the Staatsoper website require operagoers not to shout ‘bravo’ after a thrilling aria for fear of spreading virus-bearing aerosols.
‘As difficult as it is: Refrain from shouts of bravo,’ says the instruction. Just clap louder, it advises. And do not remove your mask.
We are sure there will be some boos.
