Here is today’s full mail from the Lyric Opera regarding the tragedy:
‘Wesley Daniel, who was injured yesterday in a rehearsal at Lyric Opera of Chicago, is likely to return home Thursday.
Clifton Daniel, Wesley’s father, spoke directly with Lyric’s deputy general director Drew Landmesser this morning. He told Landmesser that Wesley will likely be home on Thursday, and although he has second degree burns around his mouth, his throat and lungs are fine. Daniel is being treated at Loyola Medical Center. The effect was approved by the Chicago Fire Department.’
COMMANDOpera trusts the young man will know a speedy and complete recovery.
