And the cabinet’s succinct response:

“The artistic production, with its concept ‘Gotthard myths’, used figures and legends exclusively from Alpine culture. The aforementioned figures are not dervishes but dancing haystacks.”
According to Volker Hesse, the producer of that show, they clearly were dervishes, as stated in newspaper interviews.

No, they don't tend to inhabit the wilds of canton Fribourg.

It appears that there may have been a major design flaw

This article goes into more detail

Not a design flaw per se, but due to the planned timetable, with goods and passenger trains moving at different speeds inside the tunnel.
It could be argued that the planned timetable should have been accounted for, but the design was done more than a decade ago.

More test runs will verify the expected speeds.

No more ridiculous than that stupid NHS thing the Brits did a couple of years ago.

Opening ceremonies are always a load of nonsense.
