Will Paris pay stars for strike nights?main
The Opéra de Paris has shut down the rest of its Il Pirata run due to national strike action.
Will it have to pay the likes of Sondra Radvanovsky and Michael Spyres who turned up and were sent home?
Will it even compensate their flight and accommodation costs?
It would be worth knowing as the pension-related strikes drag on.
ANSWER: We’ve heard from cast members that they are being paid. The Paris Opera contracts have a clause that guarantee artists full fee in the event of cancelled performances due to strike.
