(Newser) – More bad news for the scandal-tinged Bolshoi Theater: A violinist who had been a part of its orchestra for four decades died yesterday after tumbling into the orchestra pit the previous day. The circumstances behind Viktor Sedov's fall have not been revealed, reports the BBC, which adds that a rep for the theater had this to say of the 65-year-old: He was loved for his "sense of humor and extraordinary erudition."

I saw that happen once in a bugs bunny cartoon. It's actually quite funny. Oh but, too bad the guy died, though
