Opera mag calls for singers to be paid for Covid cancellationsNews
From an editorial in the February issue of Opera magazine:
‘If any good is to come out of this crisis, there has to be a reform of the operatic economy. A new structure is needed that sees artitis getting paid for learning roles and attending rehearsals, not just the performances they give at the end of the process – which may get cancelled. Now that Covid cancellations have been ongoing for two years, nothing can be said to be unforeseeable—force majeure is a major farce, and contracts need to be redesigned to protect artists.’
Every weighted word the truth.
Why do agents let opera houses get away with this?
