The human rights activist disrupted LSO concert

Posted on 05 November 2013 by admin

The opening night of the London Symphony Orchestra’s Berlioz series at the Barbican was disrupted on Thursday by Peter Tatchell, who protested against Putin and his support for the anti-gay laws in Russia.

After being taken off stage by security staff, Tatchell explained he never intended to disrupt the concert; rather, he wanted to make a short, symbolic statement.

The LSO said they hoped for a quieter evening at their concert on Friday night, where they performed Berlioz’s viola concerto, Harold in Italy.
