Conductor says, Sorry I’m late. It’s the cat’s faultmain
The Spaniard Diego Martin-Etxebarria apologised for late arrival at his main job in Krefeld after a guest conducting engagement in Madrid.
Diego, who is Kapellmeister of the Niederrheinischen Sinfoniker, said he never travels anywhere without Charlotte, his cat, and he couldn’t get a seat for her on his flight so he had to take a later one.
It says so here.
