Peter Gelb: Our top artist fee is $17,000 (mine is $2 million)main
The Metropolitan Opera’s general manager has been talking money to Bavarian Radio. He claims to have saved $22 million on this year’s budget and to have earned a profit of $17-18 million on the Met’s cinema streaming (not making clear whether this is in one year, or ten).
He makes no mention of the company’s ever-widening deficit, or of his own inflated wage.
