García Caffi: "I only thought she'd
 popped out for a pint of  milk!"
As previously reported Katharina Wagner arrived at the Teatro Colon, Buenos Aires on Tuesday, decided things were not ready and returned the someday to Bayreuth - putting the future of the the Ring Project in jeopardy.

According to her,  when she raised concerns that the theatre was not ready for rehearsal, per her contract, theatre director Pedro Pablo García Caffi simply walked out slamming the door behind him and has not returned her calls or emails.

Now, in a further twist to what is becoming a very strange story, García Caffi, has said today he has no idea what she is talking about and only thought she was returning to Germany on  business and make further preparations. The first time that he heard she might not becoming back was when he read the papers.

He says that the theatre is ready per their contract and that rumors circulating in the press that K Wagner has been replaced as director are untrue. "She is contracted to do so" he says.  So she will be returning he was asked? "I suppose so" Suppose so? Well, he admitted being a little unsure now after what he read in the press!
