Rope-walker over the Neva

From the description of the video on YouTube:

The rope-walker Rasul Abakarov was the first in the history of St. Petersburg to make the transition from one to the other wing of the divorced Palace Bridge. A unique trick was watched by the full embankments of the townspeople, and the hero himself was upset, as if they did not let them all down. Rasul Abakov is a hereditary tightrope walker whose family originated from the Tovkra tight rope walker village in Dagestan. Rasul was born and grew up in Leningrad, while his father and grandfather worked in the Music Hall.

It is not surprising that the artist performed a unique transition at a height of about 43 meters above the water surface to the accompaniment of the Music Hall Symphony Orchestra. Behind the conductor's stand was Fabio Mastrangelo, Russian classics and drumming sounded ... The length of the transition was about 35 meters, the tensioned cable was 10 millimeters thick. The transition from Vasilyevsky Island to the Hermitage took not so much time - but at first a hitch came out. After the tightrope walker did his trick and went down to the ground, journalists asked him why it happened. “I waited for music,” the hero admitted.
