And finally… traviata torture

A woman who tormented her neighbours by blasting opera music for 16 years has been arrested.

Eva N would play a four-minute aria from Verdi’s La Traviata all day long with her speakers at full volume.

The homeowner in the town of Sturovo in Slovakia played the music to drown out a neighbour’s barking dog, reports, prompting locals to dub her residence “the Opera house”.

Police arrested the woman on Monday on charges of malicious persecution and harassment. If found guilty she could be jailed for up to three years.
