Annals of g-string jurisprudence: an update

Operatic trailblazer Kiri te Kanawa has won yet another victory for every soprano who doesn’t really feel all that much like singing anyway.

The Kiwi canary testified that it was only after agreeing to appear on a concert program with veteran pop icon John Farnham that she discovered that some of his fans expressed their enthusiasm by throwing their panties onstage.

The diva, noting that Farnham collected the frilly underthings “as a sort of trophy,” sniffed that she would find performing in such a milieu “disrespectful.”

Dame Kiri is pictured at right performing a scene from Mozart’s Don Giovanni with a fellow paragon of operatic decorum, Bryn Terfel.
