Is the Royal Opera House's new Hänsel und Gretel "Magical, yes. Scary, no" or "terrifying"? The Daily Mail can't make up its mind, so it ran two diametrically opposed stories. Who would have thought they were so liberal?
No surprise that Daily Mail readers have ignored the first piece and lavished their commenting insights on the second, which claims "The two-hour fairytale features lust-crazed parents, a knife-wielding wicked witch who hangs children in her larder before baking them in a giant oven and a final scene of cannibalism in which children feast on her flesh".
"Unbelievable that these morons can hold sway and produce such appalling stuff in this age of burgeoning sickos" claims a reader. From Canada.
Nothing scarier than a Daily Mail comments box.
