The Stage newspaper online reports:
“Producers of the Olivier Award-winning La Boheme have come under fire for not paying the show’s chorus just hours after the show picked up the best new opera production prize at Sunday’s ceremony.
La Boheme sold out its first six-week run at Soho last year and returned to Soho in January. Soho artistic director Steve Marmion told the BBC that La Boheme has become the theatre’s highest grossing show.
In a statement, OperaUpClose said that the chorus had been advertised as volunteer positions to offer “industry experience” to performers.
Equity is in talks with both the production company, OperaUpClose, and the Soho
Theatre, where the show transferred last year and where it earned its Olivier Award nomination.”
