Opera Singer Injured After Falling Off Stage During Performance

Mezzo-soprano Wendy White has been hospitalized after falling about eight feet from a platform to the stage during a performance of Charles Gounod's "Faust" at New York's Metropolitan Opera.

The Met Opera says White is in stable condition and undergoing further tests. Her injuries do not appear to be serious.

White was performing the role of Marthe in Saturday's performance.

Met spokesman Peter Clark said in a statement that White fell as she entered backstage during Act III onto a platform that is connected to the scenery. The opera did not say how she fell.

A black curtain was brought down and intermission announced.

White was seen by the house doctor and taken by ambulance to the hospital.

The performance resumed with Theodora Hanslowe substituting in the role of Marthe.
