Austria publishes arts chiefs salariesmain
The ones you need to know:
Helga Rabl-Stadler, president of the Salzburg Festival, made 212,700 euros in 2017 rising to 218,300 euros in 2018.
Markus Hinterhäuser, artistic director, and Lukas Crepaz, commercial director, averaged 235,100 euros in 2017 and 226,900 euros the year after.
Bregenz Festival, artistic director Elisabeth Sobotka made 194,800 euros (2017) and 211,700 euros (2018).
The salary of Dominique Meyer, director of the Vienna State Opera, has not been separately released. It is issued as an average joint figure with the commercial director: 244,200 euros in 2017 and 248,500 euros the following year.
These salaries are, of course, a tiny fraction of the US $1m+ emoluments awarded to Peter Gelb at the Met, Clive Gillinson at Carnegie Hall and Deborah Borda at the New York Philharmonic.
