The Belgian administrator, sacked as intendant of the Semperoper before he began, is going to court. He filed suit (Aktenzeichen 8 Ca 705/14) this morning against the Free State of Saxony, claiming unfair dismissal. He wants a payout of his five-year contract, worth 1.5 million Euros.



  • Opera World says:

    Let us hope that Dorny gets totally fleeced. This man was known in Lyon as Serge “Dior ny” as he was always buying suits [redacted: defamation].

    The music business scan do with fewer egos in management.

    • EricB says:

      Let’s hope. But whatever happens, let’s also hope this is the END of his career. He has finally shown EVERYONE what he’s capable of…

  • Michael says:

    Actually, not Dresden. The State of Saxony is being sued.
