The coloratura soprano Maria Bayo was fired at the first rehearsal of Don Giovanni in Bilbao two years ago after the conductor, Kerri-Lyn Wilson, said she lacked volume.
Ms Wilson is married to Peter Gelb, the Met general manager.
Fearing the sacking could damage her career far beyond Bilbao, Ms Bayo sued the Bilbao company for around $100,000 in ‘moral damages’.
Only now the Supreme Court has overturned her case and all Ms Bayo is left with is legal expenses.
Guess we won’t be hearing her at the Met any time soon.
