37-year-old Actor Crushed To Death During Stage Performance In Moscow (Video)

An actor performing at Russia’s famous Bolshoi Theatre was killed by a piece of the set while the audience looked on.

Video shows a large backdrop being lowered on to the stage during a performance of 19th century opera Sadko on Saturday night as 37-year-old actor Yevgeny Kulesh got trapped underneath and crushed to death.

The orchestra abruptly stopped playing as actors began screaming for help, while bemused spectators thought they were witnessing part of the performance before the full horror of what was happening dawned on them.

The audience was promptly ushered out as actors on stage began screaming for help, but Kulesh died at the scene before emergency services arrived.

Moscow’s Investigative Committee said it was probing the death of Kulesh.

Meanwhile, former Bolshoi theatre performers have condemned the working conditions the actors and dancers are subjected to.
