This is a tough question to answer. The goal, of course, is to pay everyone involved a fair fee for their time, talent, and effort. In the early stages of the company, this won’t always be possible. We hope to pay at least a travel-stipend to out-of-town performers, and plan to pay all principal singers at least a nominal honorarium. It’s not much to begin with, but with your continued support of what Scenic City Opera plans to do in coming seasons that’s sure to improve.
