Brazil warning: Don’t expect to get paidmain
The German soprano Nadja Michael reports that the Teatro municipal de Sao Paulo has not paid anyone in the casts of Elektra and Fosca (Gomes) for the years 2015, 2016 and 2017. Nor has the theatre administration responded to messages.
This is outrageous.
It is also normal in Brazil.
If you accept an engagement in Rio or Sao Paulo, make sure you are paid beforehand.
