We ran this story over Christmas. Any further thoughts?
Many in the profession choose Germany. That’s where there’s the most work in the greatest number of opera houses.
It’s also convenient for the rest of Europe. (If a little dull, some say).
Russians migrate to Austria.
Switzerland is popular if you’re in the right tax bracket.
Britain is favoured for its centrality and connectivity (though not for its airports).
France for its fees, and its food.
The US has pluses and minuses. The Met overshadows the rest and you can’t jump in to Europe at 24 hours notice.
So where would you choose to live as an opera singer? And where would you avoid?
What’s the best (and worst) place for an artist to live in 2015?
