Lies, intrigues, manipulation: the arts of deception are many and at least as old as the «father» of fake news himself, Baron Münchhausen. And the stage loves them: what musical drama would be complete without dishonesty? An outstanding vocal quartet plumbs the depths of deceit with hits from opera, operetta and musical.
