Woman Snoozing At Symphony Concert Startled Awake

You might not want to fall asleep at a classical music concert. That’s what one sleepy concert-goer discovered, when she attended a concert by the North State Symphony in Redding, California.

The symphony was performing Stravinsky’s Firebird and switched from a slow, quiet movement to a dramatic one. The sleeping woman’s reaction causes the audience to break out in laughter, but the musicians keep their composure and keep on playing, despite the interruption.




The video entitled, “Stravinsky Firebird SCREAM” was shared by the symphony’s music director and has since gone viral, no doubt as a humorous cautionary tale, but also one that perhaps some viewers can sympathize with.

Keep your ears peeled and share the laughter with your friends.
