Mezzo-soprano Wendy White is out of the hospital after falling over the weekend during a show at New York's Metropolitan Opera.      

She fell about eight feet from a platform above the stage during Saturday's performance of Charles Gounod's "Faust.''      

White suffered bruises but no broken bones.      

Opera spokesman Peter Clark tells The Wall Street Journal that a hinge in a plank gave way as White was performing the role of Marthe.      

The accident occurred during Act III. A curtain was brought down and intermission was announced.

The performance resumed with Theodora Hanslowe in the role.
