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 (http://on.wsj.com/uUwyZD ) that a hinge in a plank gave way as White was performing the role of Marthe.
The accident occurred during Act III. A curtain was brought down and intermission was announced. The performance resumed with Theodora Hanslowe in the role.
