Adrienne Dugger and Bayreuth agreement
Adrienne Dugger and Bayreuth has finally reached an agreement about payment after the singer was sent home from the 2008 Festival, according to DPA (via Festspiele.de). A few weeks before the 2008 Festival started, the Festival stated that Dugger had withdrawn of "personal reasons", which is the Bayreuth Festival's way of saying that they (Christian Thielemann) did not want her to sing Brünnhilde in the Thielemann/Dorst Ring. The Ring was recorded that summer and recently released on CD with Linda Watson as Brünnhilde.
