Fight Club – Chicago Symphony Edition!
Patrons at Orchestra Hall were all the more stunned Thursday because the two men were fighting in one of the boxes where the well-to-do normally sit in decorous self-restraint.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported Saturday that the ruckus began when a man in his 30s started punching a 67-year-old man.
Police say the fight was the result of an argument over seats. The older man had a cut on his forehead.
All the while, the concert went on. Though patrons said Music Director Riccardo Muti gave the two men a sharp, irritated look before continuing on with the third movement.
