Spoiler:
During a representation of the Don Giovanni opera in 1958, the
worst nightmare of stage decorators became true. As they were
changing the settings, the first setting was lifted up from the stage
while the curtains were still open, as well as the huge back doors,
to let the second setting enter. The incongruous consequence
was an unexpected face-to-face between the astounded audience
and 55th Street in New York, with the taxis, the pedestrians, and
two policemen, who could hardly believe their eyes: the whole
audience of an opera, quietly sitting in their chairs, looking back
at them.
