Faust - Opera Star Wendy White Released From Hospital After Stage Fall
Opera singer Wendy White has been released from hospital after falling onstage during a performance of Faust in New York on Saturday night (17Dec11).
The mezzo-soprano was injured after plummeting about eight feet (2.4 metres) from a platform to the stage at New York's Metropolitan Opera.
She was taken by ambulance to St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center as a precaution, but reportedly only suffered bruising and was allowed home to recuperate on Sunday (18Dec11).
Saturday's show continued 30 minutes after the accident with an understudy performing in White's place.
