Opera is cancelled due to new California lawmain
Island City Opera has suspended a March production of Ethel Smyth’s The Wreckers due to the imposition of a new California emplyment law which came into force on January 1.
The law, which is designed to stop ‘gig work’, is being interpreted by ICO’s lawyers to affect freelance performers in an opera production.
That could have widespread implications at SanFran and LA Opera.

The Wreckers, huh?
