UPDATE: A source at tonight’s Met Faust tells La Cieca that after Wendy White fell from a platform on her entrance into the garden scene, there was an intermission, then “…her cover [Theodora] Hanslowe went on from the ‘Eh quoi, toujours seule’ . . . . At second intermission now. Announcement just made that Wendy is ok but sent to ER for a precautionary measure. Show is delayed by 40 minutes so far.”
EARLIER: hears that Wendy White fell “from a platform” during tonight’s Met performance of Faust. The mezzo was
reportedly injured and taken to a nearby emergency room. The curtain was brought down early on act three, but apparently the performance is continuing. The performance is scheduled to finish at 11:40, at which time we should have more details.
