Ad Wammes, composer
Compositions: Bas Barotti
Olaf is cleaning the floor of his theatre while singing a duet with his vacuum cleaner.
Opera is “hot” and that’s why he has asked Bas Barotti to sing here tonight.
The famous opera singer appears to be an intolerant, arrogant prig who refuses to work with women. One of his favourite songs is “To hell with women”.
This causes a major problem for Olaf, since he only has a female piano player as employee.
Together they decide to teach Barotti a lesson.
