One comment on “Costume Accidents On Stage-Do They Really Happen Anymore?

  1. Gosh yes the story of Emma Livry comes to mind immediately on this subject. Many theatres burned down in those times, I think the Paris Opera burned a few times? As a tutu maker I do get very nervous of accidents, – are the layers tacked properly ? are they too tight so the tutu bunches? and they too loose so the tutu flops? is the plate tacked properly, is the decoration secure, are the diamonds glued on sufficiently, is the bodice tight enough or too loose, is it cut high enough, is the skirt too long or too short , is the hoop in the right place and so the worry goes on. But at least these days we are not likely to face the trajedies that happened in the past.
