Dog Walks Out On Stage And Settles In During Vienna Chamber Orchestra Performance
Talk about stealing the spotlight! When the world-renowned Vienna Chamber Orchestra performed at the 31st International Izmir Festival in Çesme, Turkey recently, their concert got an unexpected addition by a random stray yellow dog! The pooch can be seen casually walking up to the front of the orchestra, taking a good look around, as if he is acknowledging the audience present and they award him a round of applause!
The musicians in the <a href="https://rumble.com/v30qyv-elephant-orchestra.html" target="_blank">orchestra</a> kept their cool, though with a giggle, when the dog made himself comfortable on the best seats in the house and sat down next to the first row of violinists. Then, this brave visitor did what most of us wanted to do at some point during a classical performance. He lay down and gave a demonstrative yawn, despite conductor Ola Rudner’s best efforts to impress him.
The dog's own performance made the crowd burst into an even louder applause. Even the musicians found it awkwardly cute and funny, so they laughed as well, conductor included.
People have said that the same dog came the previous day as well, during the orchestra's final rehearsal. He probably thought that this was just another gig of theirs, so he felt right at home. Right on, doggo!
