NY Met Opera performer out of hospital

NEW YORK – AP – Mezzo-Soprano Wendy White is out of the hospital after falling over the weekend during a show at New York’s Metropolitan Opera.

She fell about eight feet from a platform above the stage during Saturday’s performance of Charles Gounod’s Faust.

White suffered bruises but no broken bones.

Opera spokesman Peter Clark tells the Wall Street Journal that a hinge in a plank gave way as White was performing the role of Marthe.

The accident occured during Act III.  A curtain was brought down and intermission was announced.  The performance resumed with Theodora Hanslowe in the role.

  1. I was at this performance! We were reassured that she was fine, but sent to the hospital as a precaution. I’m glad to hear she’s okay!
