On opening night of Cirque du Soleil's Luzia, under a 62-foot-tall big top and in front of 2,600 audience members, a performer in the final act fell. "The spell ended abruptly in the double-swing finale when a flying acrobat landed smack on her back and lay motionless, eventually carried off stage," according to Rosemary Ponnekanti of the Tacoma News Tribune.
Seattle Times critic Misha Berson described the accident as "unplanned among the thrills and chills... plunging the opening night audience into a hushed, anxious silence as she was tended to and moved off-stage during a 10-minute break in the action."
