Just in: Sacked Dorny wins dismissal casemain
The Lyon Opera boss Serge Dorny, who was sacked before he could start work at the Semper Oper Dresden, has won the first round of his claim for unfair dismissal.
The arts minister told the court that Dorny could not get on with the chief conductor, Christian Thielemann.
But Dorny, who stayed away from the hearing, maintained through his lawyers that his rights had been breached.
He is claiming 1.5 million Euros in compensation.
