Do we have any knowledge whatsoever that Radvanovsky does not wish to appear in this 

And do we have any knowledge that IF she does not, she was "invoking" anything?

>There may indeed be something valid in what you say. Sondra Radvanovsky can certainly 
do the role, and she's also now an established Norma (not to mention her Three Donizetti 
Queens). It's possible that by not wishing to appear in this production, she was invoking 
memories of such great divas as Callas, Tebaldi, Sutherland, Price, and Caballe ----------- all 
of whom would take a stand and even threaten to withdraw rather than to appear in 
productions which are unfortunately the rule rather than the exception today.
