Cruise ship performers sue Costa Concordia for $200 million

Musicians and performers say they’re unable to work after the accident

The show must go on, so the saying goes. But the curtains have closed for a group of performers who were onboard the Costa Concordia cruise ship, which capsized in January after its captain hit a rock off the coast of Italy. Thirty-two people died in the highly publicized accident.

Last week, four Hungarian musicians and dancers who were on the doomed vessel sued Carnival Corp., Costa Concordia’s parent company. According to the lawsuit, the performers can no longer work because of the physical and emotional injuries they suffered as a result of the disaster. One of their fellow performers, violinist Sandor Feher, drowned after he tried to assist children with their life jackets. The group seeks $200 million in damages.
