The Stage reports this morning (from an official leak) that the senior directors of English National Opera have taken a pay hit and made other cuts in an attempt to balance the budget, while seeking further cuts to the chorus.
Chief exec Cressida Pollock has given back 30 percent of her salary. Other managers took a 20 percent cut.
Communications director Thomas Coops will leave the company and will not be replaced.
(Oddly, his job will be merged with the director of marketing and audience engagement, ENO’s weakest spot).
