Moscow horror: 20 injured in stage collapse

Some 20 male chorus members suffered injuries after a section of the stage collapsed in a ballet rehearsal at the Stanislavsky Theatre. The singers fell five feet onto a steel scaffold. None of the injuries is reported to be serious.

You can watch video of the incident at 4:1o in the video below.

It seems remarkable that no-one rushed to the aid of the injured singers. The dancers just sat down on stage.

  • It looks like the dancers sitting down was simply what they were choreographed to do next. Two can be seen standing and facing upstage to see what happened shortly afterwards.
