Actor burned will return as Lyric Opera understudy
The show will go on for the actor who was burned doing a fire stunt at The Lyric Opera.
Wesley Daniel was cast as a fire spitting stilt walker in a fair scene from Richard Wagner’s opera, Die Meistersinger.
He suffered second degree burns to his face while attempting the stunt during a dress rehearsal back on February 4th.
Daniel will return to the show as an understudy for one of the stilt walkers he was originally cast to play.
