Top tip: Don’t fall asleep at the Opera

There’s nothing like popping on some classical music on a Friday night to wash away the stresses of the working week, writes Anna O'Donoghue.

Last Friday one lady decided to take it up a notch and relax at a performance of Stravinsky’s The Firebird by the North State Symphony Orchestra in Redding California.

And by relax, we mean get a little shut eye.

She was hilariously woken up by the timpani drum as it came crashing in mid-way through the piece.

Watch from 0.07 for dramatic effect.

We love the cheeky grin from the conductor.
