Fistfight breaks out at Chicago Symphony OrchestraFistfight breaks out at Chicago Symphony Orchestra, as maestro Riccardo Muti carries on
CHICAGO (AP) ' A fistfight broke out between two patrons in the middle of a performance at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
Maestro Riccardo Muti was nearly through the second movement of Brahms Symphony No. 2 when two members of the normally staid audience went at it.
Concert-goers at Orchestra Hall were all the more stunned Thursday because the two men were fighting in one of the boxes where the well-to-do normally sit in decorous self-restraint.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported Saturday (http://bit.ly/xLhvAL ) that the ruckus began when a man in his 30s started punching a 67-year-old man in one of the boxes.
Police said the fight was the result of an argument over seats. The older man had a cut on his forehead; the other left before officers arrived.
