Covent Garden is paying 20% of cancelled contractsmain
We hear from a couple of agents that the Royal Opera House is offering one-fifth of the value of the artist contracts it has cancelled during the pandemic period.
That’s better than the hard-nosed Met, but still way below English National Opera, which is paying all contracts in full.
What’s happening at other state operas?
UPDATE: ROH has sent a notice to agents today, confirming the payoff to all artists, regardless of size of commitment, will be 20% (as reported above).
