Rigoletto, an opera singer of great renown, was engaged to give a concert in Halifax. A hall was rented, a stage crew hired, and much advertising undertaken. The day before he was to perform, Rigoletto sent word to Halifax that he intended to send his understudy, Tremolo, to sing in his place. The reason given for the change was that one of Rigoletto's friends was leaving on an extended trip and Rigoletto wished to attend a farewell party in her honour. Tremolo was not, of course, nearly as well known as Rigoletto, but a noted music critic had recently observed that he was quite as good. Can Rigoletto's sponsors in Halifax successfully sue him for breach of contract? Give reasons.
The question belongs to Law and it discusses about a breach contract where a singer who was due to perform on a particular day said that instead of him, his student would be performing and that he has an urgent matter to take care of. The sponsors want to sue the singer for breach of contract.
