On November 23, concert-goers at Hamburg, Germany's Elbphilharmonie had their evening interrupted by radical environmentalists who rushed onto the stage to shriek about the world's imminent demise at the hands of fossil fuels.
The pair glued their hands to the conductor's stand in an attempt to evade eviction, but failed to realize that what they hoped would be their anchor was not actually affixed to the stage.
Video shows the audience booing as the two activists disrupt the concert, however, those boos turned to cheers as security made their way on stage and removed the duo, who appeared stunned by the ease with which the stand was pulled off its moorings.
A round of applause erupted as the pair were escorted out of the concert hall and into an adjoining room.
"Beautiful. Barbarians AND ignoramuses," tweeted Douglas Murray.
Last Generation defended their members' stunt, and posted a clip of one of the activists outlining why she'd done it.
"I'm standing here because we are all suppressing the climate catastrophe and are thus robbing our children of the chance to live in safety and peace. We all have responsibility for the coming generations. If we do too little now that means we share the blame for the biggest catastrophe that humanity has ever experienced."
She went on to suggest that, "just as there is only one violin concerto by Beethoven, we also have just this one planet." The German maestro actually conducted numerous violin concertos, but that's beside the point.
The activist concluded by suggesting that she wanted to have kids, but was afraid to bring them up in a world that, in her mind, was on the brink of destruction.
The Elbphilharmonie stunt is just the latest in a string of incidents in which climate activists have targeted works of art, though typically their targets are paintings, not concerts.
