Cracks appear in Icelandic Opera

We hear that the Professional Association of Classical Singers in Iceland voted a motion of no-confidence yesterday in the manager of Icelandic Opera, Steinunn Birna Ragnarsdóttir.

They say Ms Ragnarsdóttir has presided over a climate of fear, in which singers cannot complain of maltreatment and low fees, knowing that she would not re-engage them. There are also concerns over safty at work.

The minister of culture, Lilja Alfreðsdóttir, had formed a committee to consider the company’s future.
