Why is a fiasco something humiliating?

Whenever we say something is a fiasco why does it mean it’s humiliating and a disaster. The word Fiasco is Italian in origin, it means a normal flask or bottle and comes from the opera. The audiences would greet a bad performance by shouting the slang “Ola Fiasco”. It was compared to a glass blower’s failed attempt at a stunning piece of art. Or it was dismissed as a common flask, the opera was a second hand event and a fiasco.
