International pianist Nikolai Demidenko forced to move concert at leaking Adelaide Festival CentreWednesday July 24, 2013 - 10:04 EST
An international pianist was forced to move to a different theatre because of a leaky roof at Adelaide's Festival Centre.
Nikolai Demidenko was to play in the Space theatre on Monday night, but rain was leaking onto the stage, forcing a last-minute change of venue.
Centre chief executive Douglas Gautier said having to move an international performance made it evident why a refit of the 40-year-old building was overdue.
"It was not good, I mean you've got an international artist, you've got an audience and of course the ABC was broadcasting so clearly we needed to move pretty quickly," he said.
Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head is not part of the pianist's concert repertoire, but the song might have been an appropriate choice given the circumstances.
