Which opera houses can’t pay/won’t pay?main
We published shocking testimony from Brazil last week about the San Paulo opera which has not paid some artists for three years.
This is not uncommon in South America and southern Europe.
Since then, we have heard that the Teatro Regio di Torino in Italy (pictured) is not paying some of its guest singers.
Other Italian houses are in a similar position.
If you have not been paid by a major opera house, please let us know.
We’ll compile a chart of stages to avoid.
UPDATE: Maggio Musicale in Florence, long in financial troubles, avoids paying artists if at all possible.
