Talk about taking lemons and making lemon curd!  Deborah Voigt was notably fired from Covent Garden because the director thought she was too big for the black cocktail cocktail dress central to his conception of the character.  Not only did she exploit the headlines for a good deal of publicity at that time, she has since lost weight and is returning to Covent Garden in the role.  This video is a brilliant example of viral marketing, she also scored a NYTimes story

Brava diva (and that’s without even singing a note) !
