Opera against Alzheimer

On June 21, the Opéra National du Rhin in Strasbourg will hold on its parvis an auction sale of previous productions accessories to raise money against Alzheimer's disease.
The "pot-pourri" selection includes a fake strawberry tart from Der Rosenkavalier (1995-96, 5 euros listing), a polystyrene Virgin Mary from Héloïse et Abélard (2000-01, 150 euros), a 233-kg bell from Die Tote Stadt (30 euros), a motorless fire fighters truck and many more disparate and unlikely stuff.
