Kaufmann and Tezier appeal for arts to be kept alivemain
Two leading opera singers have published a vaguely-worded petition, asking Governments to act to keep the arts alive.
This is the nub of it:
Dear friends from all over Europe and the World, who share our musical brotherhood and appreciate the true value of what we bring every day to our society, know that your signature will be a fundamental support for the present and the future of the lyric world, but, beyond, to all the performing arts professions, now seriously threatened, whose activity so naturally permeates life, that everyone has even lost any consciousness of it. Support the artists, support an idea of Life that helps Life.
Jonas Kaufmann & Ludovic Tézier/Translation, Maria Prinz.
They want you to sign here.
In a couple of hours, they have 133 signatures.
