"The soprano repeatedly cued him with impatient arm waves, once stamping her foot and hitting the piano lid in frustration. After they exited the stage at intermission, with Battle vehemently remonstrating with the rattled pianist, one half-expected to see Watkins return for the second half with his head bandaged."

I believe that after the diva's performances with the Chicago Lyric Opera, the stage crew had tee shirts made up that read, "I Survived The Battle." They become a hot item with the rest of the company!

Interesting, I heard the same anecdote, only it was San Francisco Opera.

I am sorry for her. This isn't artistic temperament, it's self-destruction.
