    Default Peter Sellars' Rendition of The Indian Queen gets booed in Spain

    Apparently part of the audience at the Teatro Real in Madrid (fun fact: The Indian Queen was first performed at the Theatre Royal in London) didn't like the way the Spanish were portrayed as ruthless sadistic murderers.

    Sellars can't seem to stay out of trouble...

    He was booted out of Australia about 10 years ago for his peyote-induced ideas.
    Also, his Bart Simpson hair-do gave us the creeps.

    Sorry Spain...should've given you a heads-up.
