Opera Clarification

Last week, Little Foxling reported that one of our gedolim, HaRav HaGaon Yitzchok Hutner, attended performances of the Berlin opera. Unfortunately, in his rush to file the story, LF neglected to provide the proper context. Though it is true that HaRav HaGaon Hutner did frequent the opera, often in the company of "Rabbi" Joe Solivetchik, the Rosh Yeshiva's trips to the the Staatsoper Unter den Linden were for research purposes only. Additionally, he is known to have attended only the all male, seperate seating, Chol Hamoed extravaganza performances featuring Shwecky and All*Kosher hotdogs. Not, chas v'sholom, the ones that were open to the general public.

DovBear regrets the error.
