Conductor Vinicius Kattah decided to take a little break during a performance of Cinderella and treat the tech ops to some superb lip-sync.

We've all seen Carpool Karaoke, Lip Sync Battle or that Steve down your local pub performing some top-notch karaoke. But the tech ops at Schloss Kittsee were treated to an unexpected performance by their very own conductor when he swapped his baton around to make a mini-microphone.

Brazilian conductor and founder of Tutti Mozart Vinicius Kattah was conducting 12-year-old prodigy composer Alma Deutscher's Cinderella in the Kittsee Summer Festival when he decided to lip sync the finale duet between Cinderella and Prince Ramiro. Watching for their cues on the monitor, the tech ops start to laugh when on the other side of the screen, Vinicius begins to act out not one, but both roles in the duet, while the singers are accompanied by the piano. 

Like a pro, Vinicius jumps straight back into his conducting role just in time to cue the orchestra again. Bravo!
