Muti back leading CSO

Music director Riccardo Muti returned to conduct the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Thursday.

The performance was Muti's first time conducting the orchestra since October 1 when he took time off for exhaustion.

Then in February, he broke his jaw in a fall when he fainted. He has since had a pacemaker implanted.

The performance of Verdi's "Otello" sold out weeks ago.
