A presence from beyond the grave walked out on a recital by Dame Kiri te Kanawa on Wednesday night in Edinburgh. Following one of her songs the Kiwi diva turned to the audience and asked, “Did you hear the footsteps during the last piece? They were behind me. I wanted to look round. You have a ghost.”

A spokesman for the theater, presumably referring to this incident, remarked, “You could tell she was really freaked out.” The ghost was unavailable for comment. Opera Star Spooked by Ghost
