Bertrand de Billy
(c) Marco Borggreve

At the ancient Theater of Orange, conductor Bertrand de Billy and one clarinetist of the Orchestre National de France were slightly injured by stone throwing while rehearsing Verdi’s Il Trovatore. As the French press reports, the chef was hit at the shoulder by a stone as big as an orange while the clarinetist was hit at the hip. Fortunately the injuries were not serious and did not prevent the artists to continue the rehearsal. Three children were arrested by the police on the heights of the ancient theater.
