Booed tenor ready to sue Milan's La Scala

Top tenor Roberto Alagna, who stormed off the stage at Milan's La Scala after he was booed in mid-performance, said on Tuesday he would sue the famed opera house if they did not let him return.
French-born Alagna, hailed by some critics as the new Pavarotti, walked off Franco Zeffirelli's lavish production of Verdi's "Aida" on Sunday night after a small section of the audience heckled him as he was singing an aria.
Alagna said he had told La Scala he was ready to return to the show but the opera house had turned him down for breach of contract.
"They sent me a letter saying that the contract is annulled and that they are not going to pay my expenses," Alagna told Reuters in a telephone interview.
"So I went to my lawyer today and we are going to sue them," he said. "I have been here for a month and I have worked very hard. This sanction is just too much," he said.
The man broke his contract, no matter how good of a singer he is..he just can't do that. Sorry for your loss man, but you broke the rules and now you have to suffer the consequences.
