Not ready for her close-up

M. C- at TSR is THE source for Bay Area opera news and gossip. For those of us spending too much time watching the sun rise on one side of the sky and set on the other, he recaps the latest scandale, this one involving an unusual 'firing' of a promising singer after the final dress, because she was not "ultimately suited" for the role of Donna Anna. Sieglinde is naive (please forgive), so she's asking if this has anything to do with the Gockley screen test. Hmmm, indeed. (And yes, even the NYT is on the story.)
