Last week’s strike leaves 1% hole in Paris Opéra budgetmain
The four-day national pension strike that raged across France last week has dented an already gloomy Paris Opéra.
The institution runs on €228.7 million a year.
The strike cost €2.6 million in lost box-office revenues.
Enough to cause real headaches on the admin floor.
“…€2.6 million in lost box-office revenues.”
At around €130 per seat that would be 20,000 tickets.
Over four days? In a hall that seats less than 2000?
How does that work?
The Paris Opéra has two halls, Garnier which has about 2000 seats and Bastille 2700. Plus the strike has been going on for over a week now and looks like it could last.
