Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban fight stranger at the opera
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban had an eventful experience at the Sydney Opera House after an altercation with a gentleman.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the couple fought about opera etiquette with the man and it resulted in him being escorted from the building.
The couple attended a showing of The Merry Widow and were so thrilled with the performance that they both rose to give a standing ovation to the cast.
The gentleman behind them allegedly took issue with the fact that the pair were on their feet and told them so.
Last night we were joined by two familiar faces (recognisable even with face masks) at The Merry Widow...

After the famous couple didn't sit down, the man swatted Kidman with his show program, which was where Urban accused the man of assaulting his wife.
Kidman was left very upset after the incident, which prompted a call to police.
NSW Police confirmed that two officers were called to the opera that night.
"Police have been told a 53-year-old man and a 67-year-old man were both attending the entertainment centre when an argument broke out. Officers spoke to both men and no further action was taken," NSW Police said in a statement.
