The moment of sword throwing
That say that during the ballet Halili and Hajria at the Ballet Theater it was planned a sword match. Among those who would face the match were two ballet dancers. One of them in the fight was losing the sword and for this he had to make a spin and wait for a second sword thrown by a co-fighter. It happened that in the rehearses he delayed and the sword falls into the orchestra, right to a cello player. Everyone laughed at what happened but the cello player who wrote wrote in the score: “Moment of sword throwing”. The episode is still remembered today. In these cases, when an instrumentalist moves some say: Is it the moment of the sword?
