Pokrovsky Opera Orchestra Protests Carry-on Refusal

When the Pokrovsky Opera orchestra musicians were not allowed to bring their instrument cases on board their flight from Latvia to Moscow, Russia, they improvised. Airport staff insisted that the cases be checked, but fearing damage to their instruments, the musicians removed them from the cases and carried them on board. Once on board, they performed Vittorio Monti’s “Csárdás” for the other passengers, much to the passengers’ delight.
