Woman Arrested After 16 Years of Blasting Opera Song

Newser — Evann Gastaldo

A woman in Slovakia started playing opera at a loud volume to drown out the sound of a neighbor's barking dog—and then continued blasting the music, at all hours of the day, for 16 years, neighbors say.

She has finally been arrested and faces charges of harassment and malicious persecution, the BBC reports, citing local media. Neighbors say she constantly played a four-minute aria from Giuseppe Verdi's La Traviata, as performed by Placido Domingo, at full blast.

"I love Placido Domingo, but not like this," says one neighbor. The woman faces up to three years behind bars.
