A dress rehearsal at the Lyric Opera of Chicago went awfully awry after performer Wesley Daniel accidentally set himself on fire during a fire-breathing stunt. Daniel, an experienced fire-breather, has been treated and released from hospital. Doctors advised he is expected to make a full recovery in just two weeks. Meanwhile the company investigates what caused the incident.
Approximately 1,000 people were in attendance at the dress rehearsal where the incident occurred.
