In this Monday, Feb., 4, 2013 photo, Wesley Daniel, who plays a fire-blowing stilt walker, is seen with his fireproof mask in flames after after putting alcohol in his mouth and attempting to blow fire during a dress rehearsal of a production of "Die Meistersinger von Nurenberg" at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. According to a Lyric Opera spokesperson, Daniel was wearing a flameproof costume and mask when the incident occurred. He suffered burns to his face and throat and was later transferred to a hospital in critical condition. The fire-blowing effect had been approved by the Chicago Fire Department, but has been removed from future performances. (AP Photo/Chicago Sun-Times, Rich Hein) CHICAGO LOCALS OUT, MAGS OUT
