Caruso was hit and injured by falling stage scenery, German bass Hellmut 
Schweebs was killed by the same. French baritone Andre Bauge accidentally 
cut tenor Louis Cazette with a prop trident in a production of 
Gounod's "Mireille" leading to infection and Cazette's death; Christoff and 
Corelli got into it with two prop swords during a production of "Don Carlo".

Bad stuff has happened with infrequency, but has gone on for a long time in 
the World of opera.....

One of the posts also mentioned the more frequent use of projections by the 
MET.  It's a cheap way to fill a stage....just cover your projected area with a 
tight white, or silver sheet and boom, instant set.....far less expensive for 
one, or two workers to put these together on a computer, than to have a set 
building team build something lavish using expensive materials.  Allows Gelb to 
put out more new productions than in past years.
