The French Région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes who is currently funding the Opera in Lyon for 8% of its total budget, is likely to reduce its funding by 10%, the newspaper 20 Minutes announced. This reduction of 294.000 Euros is, according to the 20 Minutes, a sanction against General Manager Serge Dorny whose exorbitant travel costs have raised criticism among politicians. In 2014, Dorny’s travel expenses reached 156.000 euros, with a monthly average of 13.000 euros.
