So I guess I only read part of the article I quoted in my earlier blog entry (and forgot to post a link to the article too … my apologies!). There was more to the story. I just didn’t scroll down. (I’m gonna blame my illness and the layout of the article, okay?)

Regarding Ms. Garanca, Mr. Gockley commented, “It pains me greatly to announce that Ms. Garanca has chosen not to appear in next season’s Werther as promised. She is a glamorous young star who has created a stir in Europe and at the Metropolitan Opera, and I was looking forward to presenting her West Coast debut. However, after extensive discussions with her management and having filed a grievance through the American Guild of Musical Artists (AGMA), I am satisfied that the financial settlement we have reached disposes of the matter.” A series of European concerts has been recently announced on Ms. Garanca’s website during the Werther performance schedule.

And HERE is the link I neglected earlier. Sorry!
