Airline refused to board this orchestra’s instruments, so….

July 10, 2018 by norman lebrecht


…. the musicians checked in empty cases, but carried their naked violins on board. And started playing

The airline is Aeroflot, the airport Riga.

The orchestra is Камерный музыкальный театр им. Б.А. Покровского.

    I thought there’d be something about this since when whoever that is given that he’s been stalking someone who consequently is supposed to arrive on stage and do whatever he was resumed to, WHY the lilliputians think he’s worried about being fired, stick a hose up his bum, and once again we have the romantic period waiting in the luggage area, which is released on stage.

    I’m glad to see we have variation.

    That is computer-generated drivel, or a google translation? Let’s have a contest to figure out what the original was meant to say.

    Actually all the good wills and clearly written this particular airline rules (adjusted recently towards musicians) are beaten by rude and uneducated check-in agent. Lol, facepalm, whatever…
